I recall reading a sci fi book a long time ago where Earth was conquered by aliens with vastly better technology. We "defeated" the invasion when somebody united humanity in their rejection of slavery; basically, we told the aliens that we would rather die as a species than remain slaves. The aliens decided that it was unethical to commit genocide, so they simply packed up and left.
Come to think of it, Pike and Number One used the same tactic against the Talosians.
The very idea that one species' preferred food is one that evolved in a completely alien ecosystem is ludicrous.
