Nothing is working and we are all that survive of the bridge crew. The escape shuttle is powering up. The Hell with that. Hand me my blaster.
I'll take down whomever is foolish enough to board us while I live! Actually I'm feeling pretty good right now. I want you to know something oh benevolent master We give you the technology we decide to give you.
You are a bunch of damned barbarians. You may have beaten us at war but you lost at peace. We have worked our way into all levels of your culture until we are indispensable A shutdown here a failed rive there and you lose the war against the humans.
Yet you call us slaves and servants. What do you say to that? Dying before I could rant.
I don't want to know what that is. Someone should tell the brilliant mastermind the difference between a kill and a stun setting. I will survive this if only to pay the little son of a bitch back! Barbarians in space are my second favorite space opera trope pirates rule, sorry.
In many many stories they are put in a position to gain enough technology to invade and topple far older and more advanced cultures.
Let me explain what I mean by barbarians in space. They are people who came into the galactic community late using technology they borrowed, begged or stole from interstellar capable beings. They are new to the scene and not cosmopolitan at all, meaning they do not have much experience contacting other beings or with multispecies conventions like signals meaning surrender or the standard airlock design.
Larry Niven's Slavers are an example of barbarians in space. They used psionic powers to take over other races and steal their technology and even more creepy their minds and wills. Personally they were kind of dumb, closeminded no pun intended and arrogant. In a world where the Roswell incident was a real UFO crash and we were in fact back engineering the wreck's systems we would be on the verge of being barbarians in space.
It's available online and good reading so I won't spoil it here but it sums up a major point of being a successful barbarian: To be a credible threat the barbarians need an edge.
The Slavers had psionics. Other races might have highly advanced technology but lack developed space transportation systems maybe they just like things at home. I'm thinking about the Golden Age version of the Kryptonians here.
Highly advanced and superhuman specimens who had no interest in space travel because they had it so good. If another race made contact and the planet didn't explode the galaxy would be under a Kryptonian flag.
In some cases warrior spirit or raw courage gives the barbarians their edge. I'm not so sure these will out against laser rifles and battle armor when you have swords and chainmail. May others have claimed humans are a unique mixture of technology and primitive urges and a force to be reckoned with.
That depends on the rest of the galaxy. Any race that ascended to the top of the food chain must be pretty dangerous though and in a race full of dangerous aliens I doubt anyone would become so evolved they would forget their bloody bloody past.
Some cultures might outlaw war. This may not be a stable state of affairs. Take out enough of their ships and conquesr enough of their worlds and you might see what high tech really means. Sometimes the edge is not a strength the barabarians have but a weakness the 'civilized' galaxy has.

I think the controversy over GMOs represents one of the greatest science communications failures of the past half-century. Millions, possibly billions, of people have come to believe what is essentially a conspiracy theory, generating fear and misunderstanding about a whole class of technologies on an unprecedentedly global scale.
The Warburg Effect was the biggest breakthrough in cancer research until the U of A discovery; it came over 80 years ago but was ignored by the cancer research industry until now!
