* The fact that the [[KillerRobot Yor]] can not only generate influence like everyone else, but actually win a cultural victory is [[{{Handwave}} explained in-game]] by stating that in every species, there are always those that [[{{Roboship}} really like robots]], [[TooDumbToLive even genocidally murderous ones]].

And the the diplomatic option that you can give is to say that ''Yes'' [[{{OutOfCharacterMoment}} you DO want to have a look at their product catalog]]!
