an interesting question :
people claim that secret alien / goverment collaberations have led to a mind boggling array of secret bases all over the place
simplest premise of the OP , namely human " cattle " for technology trade my simplest "if i ran the zoo " solution would be a single very large
sinply " aquire " your human trade goods , and set sail for an issolated area of empty ocean - the alien ship comes down - transfer is made , and
PS - do the aliens REALLY need to be here 24/7 ???????? if not order them to stay in space and only come down to collect the shipments
ship returns to port - with alien techno toys , which are analysed and " gradesd " in situ " for forawrding to hi security labs / think tanks
across the country
does any one here know EXACTLY what research is done at the CDC-P labs , every single day ?
or the soviet era biopetrat faciliies - they had huge lab " cities " we knew what was going on thier - ie bio weapons research - but zero idea just
what pathogen / strain was being researched at any one time [ barring the accidental epedemics ]
of course demanding ideas rather than actual items would be a better idea
if you have a netowrk of think tanks - a very small cadre can splitt up ideas and farm out " partial discoveries " and tantalising break throughs
" hey we have discovered this and have hit snags - what do you think ? "
a classic example would be the developement of semi conductor electronics and the diode
rather than give bell labs the actual alien tech and make them reverse engineer it
get the aliens to provide details of the principles behind semi conductors
then just send bell labs an outline and research grant , urging them to investigate :
" the electical propeties of silicon and geranium compounds "
it takes longer - but is far more secure , no one at bell labs would have any inkling that they had been led by the nose
and let the other team run with it
