I think the aspect you might be missing is derived from the manga version of Arpeggio, which didn't get explored much in the anime- the Fog are conditioned, designed even, for obedience. They need to fit in to the chain of command somewhere, even if that chain is only one link long, and the need is so powerfully ingrained that they will fall in and follow the first thing that gives them orders (e.g. Kongou working for EarthForce even though she knows they're scum).

Consider that the rest of the Fog ships at Midway just woke up to find they have no orders, triggering that need; they just manifested Mental Models, giving them access to emotions; and then they discover that a professional asshole (and her Psi Corps handler) are coming to give them those orders whether they like it or not, and it's not surprising at this point that they're throwing themselves towards Option B.

What makes Tenryuu's attitude even funnier is the fact that she is, in fact, outgunned by the Akatsuki sisters by a fair margin, and by everything else in the dock by a much, much greater margin.

"This is probably a stupid question, but . . ."
