Question

I got the following quote as a reply to a post on one of the other forums on this site. However, it's raised the question of whether the Aslan are a major race.

As I understand it, the major races are those who invented jump drive on their own. The Geonee discovered jump drive by researching an Ancient ship and are disqualified as a major race because of this. If the Aslan discovered jump drive by researching the Terran scout ship Pathfinder, why are they included in the list of major races?
