Eventually they developed space travel and advanced into space. Soon after this they learned the hard way that not all other species were interested in peaceful trade and harmonious co-existance. They had lost over a dozen ships before one was able to escape and return to explain what was happening. As a result all their ships were recalled and work started on the development of weapons. Fortunately they had fairly good scans of the vessel that had attacted them to work with.
