Sahara, you and your compatriots are simply tools. The actual Triglavians give you nothing, but gladly let you believe you mean something more than your value as a distraction.
You work for the privelege to die for something that doesn’t care about you. I’m sure you can say that the empires are comparable, but the empires are staffed by actual humans that haven’t been mutated or indoctrinated into an insane cult. People in the empires can actually care.
It matters little though. You’re about as intelectually interesting as a True Slave.
