The pak’ma’ra’s habits, diet and general hygiene did not make them very many friends in the League to begin with; the Abbai had to come to their political rescue on more than a few occasions. The Drazi believed them to be too quiet and did not trust the translators, the Brakiri hated having to smell them in meeting rooms and even the Hyach wondered why the Abbai would vouch for a race of foul carrioneaters. When the pak’ma’ra explained exactly what they had been mining for the Centauri all negative opinions of them became far less important.
The area surrounding the Great Library has an extremely powerful magnetic field from a concentration of Quantium-40 ore, which theoretically would have been much stronger before the planet was dotted with machinery, cities and the like. The hydrosphere of Melat contains a dramatically higher amount of ferrous particulate matter in the seas, allowing for a strong magnetic attraction to steer the tides and currents of the seas – drawing all floating craft to the Library’s shore.

They had lost too much against the Dilgar and were still rebuilding much of their own fleet and structures. When it was all said and done they were happy to help the Earthers rebuild and recoup their losses but they did not do so until after the war was over. The Babylon Project was a great thing for the pak’ma’ra. It brought dozens of galactic races together under the guise of peace, where the Civility could then make deals and arrange for travel treaties all over the galaxy.
