Default Statting a couple of unique races

I've run this setting a couple of times under a couple of systems, but now the time has come for me to do it in GURPS. I'm trying to convert a couple of races, but there are a few things I'm not clear on.

One of them is a race of insectoid creatures who are naturally telepathic. They are mute, but use telepathy to communicate. Would they acquire a Mitigator enhancement to Cannot Speak? What value?

Another is a race of minotaurs created as a slave species by an ancient empire. While they are not so extreme as to have actual Slave Mentality, there is a subservience built in to them. I'm wondering how I should model this. My current thoughts are Gullibility (only towards humans), or Sense of Duty (humans). What do you guys think?

No, they would just be mute and telepathic.

I would go with Sense of Duty so long as they want to be helpful to humans.

Just give them Mute/Cannot Speak and Telesend. It'll probably cost positive points, and Telesend has drawbacks compared to speech (some of which you can buy off for more points).
