"Simians" are a race of large ape-like humanoid. They apparently face discrimination from the rest of the Galactic Federation. This, according to a captured Space Pirate that was dubbed "P-1", is due to them being considered primitive compared to most other humanoids. P-1 states that the Chozo, particularly Platinum Chest, had recommended the species to the Federation.
