Disagreeing with someone and doing things your own way does not necessarily mean you are self-serving.
But isn't STO about striving for objetivity? If there are two positions (these guy's and the Federation's) wouldn't it be wise for them to consult 6D STO or Zindar council or whoever is "above" them to help them solve the disagreement so that all can do the best aproach together?
Instead of doing an intervention that would prevent us from learning the pending lessons?
And they are quite direct about the "horror of the situation" (the likelyhood of genocide on Earth), unlike the New Age channelings. There were also live Q&A sessions with questions from viewers to this starship crew in real time on Youtube.
Probably because many people got tired of new agey style and they had to adapt the speech to current potential readers; making it a kind of Ashtar Command 2.0.
