Gaiads do not produce any economy or industry on their own. I'm not sure if this acts as a multiplier for factory output. So, a planet full of Gaiads produce corn cobs and test tubes, but no hammers or coins.

If you don't like the Pell or Scavengers, just enslave them and experiment them into extinction. (Enslaving an unruly race should be fun.) I know there was something mentioned about primitive races not making good slaves or being protected under old treaties, but do you really think the Gremak would leave a population of Lummox alone because they are an endangered species?

Though they are certainly supposed to be a nuisance. They are placed on choice planets in lieu of some kind of orbital defenders specifically to reduce the value of certain plum planets.
We specifically don't allow you to enslave or exterminate undesirable native species because they are specifically meant to be a disadvantage to an otherwise very advantageous world.
There is also the issue that we would need to add additional "enslaved" art assets for each minor race, but that is a secondary consideration.
If you could simply enslave and execute every sub-optimal native race, then there would be no point in having them in the game at all.
