Writing a story where an emissary from a more advanced civilization has arrived to give weapons to a a civilization that has only recently graduated to crossbows so that they can defeat their enemies. I'm just not sure what the technology IS. Should I go with the obvious and have it be gunpowder/firearms? Something a little more techy that these people will still be able to figure out, repair and perhaps replicate? Or just go with something that's essentially magic? I don't know anything about my advanced civilization yet so the possibilities are pretty wide open.

I think you're violating the prime directive. Better watch out or the Federation will be after you.
Hey, the Klingons started it. Kirk just wanted to even the odds by giving Tyree's people guns and gunpowder too. Now If he'd of given them phasers that might have been a big no-no.
