Suppose they guess that the ship was a superweapon of the empire. Wouldn't you wanna get your hands on the technology, interrogate the prisoners for intelligence and trade them for something? Substitute interrogate with torture and it becomes obvious that taking prisoners has nothing to do with "interspecies rights" or something like that, it is just a strategic option which you have to consider alongside the obvious option of destroying this monstership.
