If I was running a space ship based on exploration and I have sensitive equipment I didn't want to fall into the hands of primitive natives, I'd build these things with a short out device that can be activated by radio. This isn't even beyond our capabilities today. Or just cut your losses being if you dropped a cell phone on medieval Earth, there' not much they'll be able to do with it, especially when the battery runs out. But what do I know?

As for Singularity, yeah it's all been done before. At least they didn't all start randomly having sex.
That's a good idea, but I think they were concerned with reverse-engineering or what have you, and that these people (who are at war) might have access to creating technology they are not ready for. But, like T'Pol said, they ended up "contaminating" them anyway.
