>Are there maybe movies produced by aliens with neumono actors, maybe trying to profit on the neumono market?
I'll take this one, if you don't mind. It wasn't uncommon for alien moves to hire neumono actors, depending on the character they wanted. Of course, they were minor roles at first, often just side characters, sidekicks at most. Acting, admittedly, isn't our strong point, but some of us had a knack for it. Lukratsa, for starters.

Interhive trading was rare enough, and was usually done only because two different hives had access to different resources, but needed all kinds. Plus, when neither felt it worth conquering the other. That trade was usually done with bartering for goods, so interhive currency was doubly rare.

There just wasn't any way to instantly get multiple hives to get along with each other, and similarly, there just isn't a single ultrahive that stabilized without massive amounts of blood. It wasn't money in neumono hands that caused such
