I have always assumed the Vulcans saw their weak galactic position and made the only logical move; uplift a species of amenable, if violent and short sited shorter lived people and mold them into being basically their dogs.

omg we're the krogan lol

I thought you read my episode pitch exploring this very idea!!!

By creating a "federation" but built on Vulcan ideals, the Vulcan get tons of inbuilt legal and cultural advantages while offsetting other species ire on the humans, who conveniently, don't mind dying en masse to control space rocks and don't live long enough naturally to out maneuver Vulcan institutions. Vulcan in the show is treated a lot like monarch of a constitutional monarchy, they don't do much, get tons of tourism and respect, special treatment for even their failure children, and nobody blames them for what admirals and politicians get up to.

The important thing to this whole scenario is that humans are the only main space faring civ we've seen who would be ok with this, thats why they were chosen. Its all so, logical.

I figure the Andorians would also go along with that, right?

Andorians are shown in TOS and Enterprise as fighting against Vulcans, and not needing to be uplifted to have space travel either, so I think that rules them out. The Vulcan plan is two step; you need a mean son of a gun to be your guard dog but you also want one that feels like it owes you forever in a way it can't repay.

Finally, its time for a gritty reboot of DS9 where it shoots a missile barrage once an episode and the captain says gently caress
