I don't know about that. There's a reason why the aliens are usually the ones who come to earth instead of the other way around. And that's usually because their technology allows for interstellar travel while humans are still stuck on earth or our own solar system. Hence, by definition, they are usually technologically superior to humans.

Of course, I'm not saying it'll be a bad story. Humans tend to like being depicted as the underdogs who defeat the big bad aliens through sheer perseverance or whatever. But I wouldn't call it fresh either.
