In Future, racial oppression is based on what world you're from, and only Earthlings get to be doctors. Oh noes, seriously? But Main Character totally slogs on anyhow and goes to school on Hospital Earth (what? yes, apparently only humans figured out how to overcome bacteria nasties, do brain surgery and stop plague, etc.), a planet bucking for galactic membership.It is okay! Everyone learns this lesson in the end and loves each other. ( )
