Since they didn't know if the alien tech allowed them to keep tracking their ship, they had no idea if they'd escaped or not. They had no way to warn Earth. By sheer bad luck, they actually went deeper into the alien territory. Finally, they found themselves being chased down. their weapons were useless. The aliens clearly intended to capture them alive and learn the whereabouts of their home planet. So the humans ate their last meal and prepared to destroy themselves. One character flushed the trash out the ships disposal system. The same chemical that basically ate up their waste products was ejected into space. Turned out the aliens coated their ships in a substance that this waste disposal chemical ate away and before you knew it, the alien ship exploded.
Sometimes, you can have too much technology.
