I'll go with The Motion(less) Picture. ?V'Ger could wipe anything out with a single command. ?it could have destroyed the entire galaxy if it wanted.

What about "The Voyage Home" ? If Kirk and company didn't stop the Probe it could have destroyed Earth then wreak MORE damage across the galaxy. ?:logical:

I dont think so because it was looking for humpback whales specifically.

True but who knows what it might have done if it didnt find any.

How do you know???

Maybe the probe would have tried to destroy humanity as a whole.

Every planet, every colony, every space station.

Who knows???

I don't think so because it was specifically looking for humpbacks. Also the havoc wreaked on earth was a result of the use of their technology, not an attack, otherwise why was it directing it's transmissions at the Ocean.

And again we dont know how the probe would have retaliated if it didnt find any whales.

And thats my point.

You just dont have a bases for your denying the possibility.

Yes i do, it's called my opinion. If they were hostile, they would have attacked right off he bat. That and according to the book "Probe", the probe was attacked by the borg. The attack was repeled and no borg cubes were destroyed.

I said you have no bases for what you think not that you dont have a right to think it.

Meaning theres absolute no canon evidence that supports the opinion that the probe would have done nothing if they didnt find whales.

I'll stop you right there.

No books are canon and the Borg were even created when the film was made.

So none of that is relevant.

Don't get your hopes up.....
While Abrams Star Trek still makes me nauseous, sick and sad if I watch it..It's still a Star Trek movie though an alternate reality. ? :bored:

This is a good thing to recognize and very respectable. Even if you do not like the movie it is still Star Trek.

I cannot decide which movie I consider the most dangerous mission. Many here are weighing most dangerous as though it means worst possible outcome. I consider this partly true but it also means most risk for failure along with overall difficulty. There are many things to consider!

I will say the worst possible outcomes are the Motion Picture and the Voyage Home followed by First Contact and Star Trek and some others. This is because the threat endangered more than just Earth. Then we can consider the difficulty of each mission which many here have also done. I must think more on this subject before I can give a conclusive answer!

Let's get to it, out of all the movies who had the most DANGEROUS mission, in other words when was life on Earth in more trouble than usual..
All the Star Trek movies had danger to them but some were worst than others where life on Earth and elsewhere was in real jeopardy,
off the Top TMP had a sense of urgent peril as Vger was about to wipe out life on Earth,
in First Contact the human race could had been turned into the Borg, etc.
Which movie or Crew had the most danger to face

I got to say that TMP, The Voyage Home, First Contact and the New Film had an equal amount of danger and risk to the human race.

And I'd add Generations to that list.  The fate of the entire universe, or at least an entire galaxy, could have been altered.  However, I voted for First Contact.  TMP and TVH most assuredly could have had terrible ramifications if failure happened, but still I went with First Contact.

NEMESIS

I voted for First Contact as the most dangerous, but I'm going to go out ona limb here with Nemesis as a close second. Here's why:
You have the flagship of the Federation going on a "diplomatic" mission in hostile territory with a race of beings known for their hate of the Federation, and known to be extremely deceitful. Then, they discover that there's a maniac in control of the Romulan Empire who is in possession of a weapon that could kill billions with the slightest exposure. A weapon that has a cloak so perfect, he could stroll right up to Earth and use it, and no one would know what hit  them. This same maniac is bent on the destruction of Earth, and the template he was cloned from. The Enterprise is hopelessly outgunned, and the Federation has no idea that this weapon is potentially on its way. The only thing that gave Picard and crew any hope of even slowing Shinzon down (and lead to his defeat) was a sypathetic (and hot) Romulan commander who had a change of face.

Now, I'd call that a dangerous mission. Of course, there's the fact that I couldn't stand Shinzon's character in general. He came across to me a whiny, dress wearing, punk. For someone who was raised "under the lash of Romulan taskmasters", I thought he should've had a little more edge to him.
