Question Unlocking young races

Hello All! I don't yet understand how one "unlocks" a young race to play. I read in some Steam discussion that you need to win a diplomatic/military victory while allied with one or more young races to unlock that race, but I see a certain young race unlocked even though I won the last sector with a Guild win.
Someone please explain when, exactly, a young race is unlocked.
EDIT: Upon further reading, I see that if a race "emerges", that should be enough as well, but it's also not clear what emerging entails, so some details would be welcome.
(If it's explained somewhere, then please excuse me for opening a new thread; I looked in the manual and did a search here but found no answer.)

In general you just need to get them to emerge into the galaxy. They basically need 5 points to emerge. A militray win or eliminating another race is worth 5, a diplomatc win is 2.5, and other wins are 1.25.

Thanks for the pointer. Aside from the points granted by the various victories, what gives them points? Having more planets and ships and generally climbing the faction power scale?

They get 0.5 points for starting in a sector, 2.0 for getting added to an in-progress sector, get 5.0 points for destroying another race, and lose 1.0 for getting eliminated.

Nope, just the drop down list on the new ship screen.

Ok, many thanks.

Any chance I could ask for such a Feature as a Feature Suggestion? Could be cool to be able to see what Drox Versions of Unlocked Races can do & be able to read up on them or such during spare time, like while eating Lunch or such... not to mention see if any of them look appealing to play as or if one would wanna 'keep fishing' for more Unlocks to find potential appealing Playstyles.

So, I was playing around with unlocking (to see if I could make it so that a win emerges all young races) and came to the conclusion that only 1 race can emerge in each sector, at least I couldn't get more than one to emerge. Is this observation correct? If so, is it hard-coded? (I suppose the assumption is that, with a military win being the only truly reliable way to make a YR emerge, a player won't have more than one candidate anyway.)

Multiple races can emerge at the same time.
