Some specific examples would probably help me address this, but in general, it's worth keeping in mind that the ships of the Midway Fleet are not particularly in conflict with humanity at that point. They don't have any orders, and without orders, until they manifested their Mental Models (which in most cases just happened the first time we meet them), they didn't have any opinions either.

Having just that minute developed the capability to have opinions, and in the absence of orders, they have to figure out where they stand on everything that confronts them for themselves. That's a tall order at the best of times.
