He, beings capable of interstellar travel would have very little need for "slaves", I mean, even on mean old earth slaves only made sense until 1 coal joule was cheaper than 1 man joule.

If you can travel over light years a joule is going to be extraordinarily cheap, or time is not relevant. Either way, very hard for me to see how human slaves would be of any use to them.

correct on all account but still you're applying a earthling stick to measure usefulness.

maybe they need a creativity core for their warship ai.

Or snu snu

Or pets! ^_^
