This. Every group that prosecutes and demonizes another group thinks they are the good guys. They are doing what they are doing for the good of everyone (as long as they think and behave as they do.) The Nazis are just the most well known example of this.
There is no way to separate it into "good nazi" or "bad nazi", even in a fictional setting. Borg and similar races are a metaphor for things like Nazis because it allows deeper introspection than just saying "space nazi". Although a closer alien to nazi is species 8472, at least at first, "The weak must perish" and killing all life not like them.
Best advice, keep Nazis out of the game, even in cannon ones. You'll save yourself trouble, unless that's actually your goal.
