V'ger, at least, just wanted to be loved,
and could be reasoned with.

TVH's Probe was too stupid to even know its
transmissions were destructive. That kind of
moronic device seems a far greater threat, to me.

what I want to know is, what if both V'ger and the Probe arrived at the same time, what would happen???

...Well, V'Ger's 'Prime Directive' is to 'know all that is knowable' by patterning everything from sentient beings, to ships, to space stations, to entire worlds-and most certainly this includes the 'Whale Probe', which it would immediately target for such process, unless, of course, it already had prior knowledge of the Probe and its systems, etc.Now, the three Klingon battlecruisers were endeavoring to attack V'Ger, so on the surface for sure, that action it took to remove the K'Tingas from its path could be viewed as defensive, at least from the Klingons' perspective, but, really, they posed no threat, so you can go with the PD it has off the bat...As for the Probe itself, well, there were no whales in Kirk's time, that is of the species which it was apparently sent to determine the fate of via the proof of the 'whalesong' scene at end of ST4. It would react as it did fifteen years later, and try to create an environmental condition to take actions against the ''Mites''(From the novel ''Probe'')i.e., humanity that caused its sought-whale species' extinction. V'GER would react, in seeing this as interfering in its process of patterning Earth(If you assume that 'the Creator' did not answer, as inTMP), then there would be a 'rumble in the sol system'..LOL...V'Ger shrugs,finishes its job(discounting Jim Kirk and co, of course!)

I put TVH on as "background noise,"
when I'm doing other things. I noticed
the dedication to CHALLENGER in the beginning,
and wondered if Dr. Taylor didn't remind people
of Christine McAuliffe? With all the hype of the
first civilian going into space at that time, I'm
sure this must've helped the movie's appeal, then.

  I suppose the Biggest threat of all is the one that has yet to strike, (may be the  full powered Dalek empire  if they shoul decide to invade eh?)
