The colony of Species 8472 spies may have become too successful at impersonating Starfleet personnel they slowly abandoned their original omnicidal alien mindset and became more human? That happened in a episode of TOS featuring aliens from Andromeda (who were also described as terribly aggressive and alien).
That would be a very typical and tired Star Trek theme.
Its still an explanation, its better then their motives changing between episodes, with only possible explanation is they are wimps who become scared sheep when you give them a bloody nose. It would have been nice if the episode flat out gave this explanation for this behavior change, instead of having us guess it.
