*** Keep in mind, in the TrekVerse, the Vulcans themselves would've continued ignoring Earth but for the flight of the ''Phoenix''.

** Somewhat subverted in the third OAV series, when a person points out that due the main casts' presence there, Earth has technically become the single greatest concentration of power(in both the political and absolute sense) in the universe. It's just that very few people on the planet know it.

* The primary motive of the Terran Cult in ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' revolves around this trope. At one time Earth was the center of a massive colonial empire that spanned a significant portion of the Milky Way. However, Earth began to brutally exploit and repress the people of its colonies, which led to a bloody revolution. The colonies barely scraped by with a victory and Earth was left a hollow shell of its former self, becoming less and less significant as time passed by. The Terran Cult's plan is to use organized religion and terrorist actions in order to manipulate politics and history so that Earth is made the center of the Universe once again.
