Okay, I just looked them up, apparently they can change shape, so they must be the same race. Apparently they're very xenophobic to begin with. Maybe because they are the only denizens of fluid space, but I don't think they are (they might be, that would explain a lot).
Obviously they're fearful, but that doesn't justify their aggressive expanse. They're not even trying diplomacy, they probably don't consider the other races worthy of interaction. Their superior biology probably does give them some sort of eugenics mentality.
In voyager there was an episode where they came across a station which was mimicked like sstarfleet academy and 8472 were posing as humans and such in the academy, in order to get ready to infiltrate the federation i think they needed to take a drug of somekind to shapeshift though if memory serves correct
