e.g a Technology that was unique to them that allowed a unique unit or City improvement for example
you could either gain this by killing them and hoping to steal it whilst looting there cities (wich wouldnt be a 100% chance) or by slowly gaining good relations with them then allying and eventually merging them into your civilization so all there cities become yours
this peaceful way would gaurentee 100% that you would gain watever unique advantage that this minor civ has to offer.
Im sure this would be difficult but with the source code it would also be possible
