War...changes people. Its a fact of life and a very true and testable one. in this history for STO, the Federation is effectively fighting on more fronts than it has ever had to before. In this situation, as it is presented in the game, the very survival of the Federation is in doubt. So, would the Federation do whatever it takes to ensure its own survival? Of course.

This doesnt make them evil however, though the situation may force them to do distasteful things. Rather, the Federation has started to become indifferent to anything that stands in the way of its continued existence. This is what leads to the...ACTS that take place in the storyline, the sheer desperation for survival.
