Give up and be killed? Was the Space Amoeba even sentient? The Salt Vampire was in the process of killing Kirk when it was shot. The Space Amoeba had killed billions.
All of which is irrelevant to the question of whether Starfleet could enforce a policy of non-genocide.
It's relevant to the definition of genocide. The near-extinction of the North American bison wasn't genocide. Buffalo are not sapient beings.
