In the last game I played, I was playing as Thalan on a tiny map. At one point in the game both the Altarian Resistance and the Torians both offered me to trade my: "Instellar Governments" for "Devil's Forge".
The thing is I already had the "Devil's Forge" technology. Why aren't they offering me a tech I don't already have ? Both races had technology that I didn't have.
