From back of book: The galaxy is run on Eeb-built technology, which is a great and glorious thing--if you aren't an Eeb. Legally labeled as "less than sentient", they have no hope for liberation except for by the hands and face-tentacles of Interplanet Amity, a galactic watchdog group who are about to make their biggest mistake yet--asking for help form the human race.
