Now, what if said alien race's first reaction is to "eliminate the infection" that has visited their planet and instantly destroy the ship and crew? And what if there isn't time to send a warning back to Starfleet, and they send another ship to see what happened?
If they take the time to find out what the name of the ship means, why wouldn't they be willing to talk beyond that? And if they're so high-strung about historical allusions to violence, you'd think they'd react first to the very idea of an armed starship.
