I think the race hadn't met the Federation UNTIL your Boffs started briefing them (remember, the first contact is underway when you arrive in the Observation Lounge). They're trying to figure out what all the information your boffs shared meant

First contact mission in this game is more like that diplomatic mission from TNG with the fish people, and a lot less like the special first contact time travel snafu that frist contact the movie was.

The Vulcan first contact itself had nothing to do with time travel. Supposedly Picard and crew just made sure it went the way it was "supposed to" according to their history.

It seems modeled primarily on the "First Contact" reception from Insurrection, which seems to be the ceremonial name for the opening of diplomatic relations.

I agree, as a Starfleet diplomat you're sent there to make sure formal relations go as planned. That way you don't have some idiot phaser jocky telling a peaceful people that all he's done the past year is shoot Klingons, while ignoring the rest of the Federation and non-combat roles of Starfleet.
