But protecting them from alien intervention? Seems paradoxical, considering that abducting them and transplanting them on other worlds is pretty dang interventionist in and of itself.
I recognize the contradiction, but from a practical standpoint I don't have a problem with it. It fits with the idea that such an organization might have more in common with something like Greenpeace or PETA etc. Such groups often believe that they have altruistic intentions but can be hypocritical when it comes to their own behavior. Hell we've seen the Federation do similar things on Trek itself..."OMG those horrible Klingons are interferring in that world's development," while the cosmos are littered with worlds that the non-interferring Federation has interfered with.
