exams are boring, and if we see a fly we get stomped of it.

So i was looking at some star trek comparison charts and i saw the v'ger size.. 98 km..

I was expecting it to be bigger.. The huge glow around it, the enterprise flew more than 1 hour at half impulse i think through it? I was expecting it to be 500-1000km big. but 98km??

also, the environment of the v'ger, what kind of aliens were living in it?

Its bigger than the Whale Probe, and that was quite the size. The cloud could have slowed the Enterprise down more than we were made aware?

To be honest, I doubt anything was actually living inside it.

V'Ger - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki

yeah it's a huge comparison chart with federation and babylon 5 ships etc.

Personally i think vger is one of the most non-understandable alien i've seen. As is the movie. So huge, and illogical. Apparently, the vger had found the borg homeworld..

V'ger had no crew. It was 100% automated.

Does the 98 km's include the cloud/energy barrier? Cause if I remember correctly, the Enterprise first flew a while inside the barrier, and later inside V'ger itself.

no no, the cloud was fake, it was created by vger. But the ship itself was 98km.. The entire room where stuff were projected..planets, ships, galaxies..

i'm believing more and more that it was made by the borg.. After reading it, it could be right. The probe crashes down on the machine planet, that was located on the other side of the galaxy (delta quadrant, borg space?) and it came there by a black hole, so it travelled through time and space. The borg were in 1400ad still very low and had a few sectors in their hands but they were already the borg that we know. If the probe crashed down on the machine planet which was perhaps even hundreds of thousands of year before that, it could be right.. They repaired the probe and gave it the real message, acquire information.. Like the borg do, they assimilate for information..

It's funny... some people theorize that the V'ger created the Borg.

Gene Roddenberry joked in an interview shortly after "Q Who" that the machine planet seen by Spock might have been the Borg homeworld. (Star Trek Encyclopedia) This idea was further developed in the William Shatner novel The Return, where Spock's mind meld with V'Ger not only protected Spock from being assimilated (since the Collective was already present in Spock's mind, the Borg assumed he was already one of them), but provided the Federation with the coordinates of the Borg homeworld for a final attack. It may also be significant that Spock, when referring to V'Ger, says, "Resistance would be futile." In the game Star Trek: Legacy, it is said that V'Ger itself created the Borg to gain the knowledge by assimilation. The Star Trek: Voyager episode "Dragon's Teeth" seems to contradict the game's storyline, as the character of Gedrin states to Seven of Nine that his species, the Vaadwaur, had encountered the Borg over nine centuries prior to his revival, placing the Borg's genesis at least as far back as around the year 1400 AD. The story writers for Star Trek: Legacy, however, claimed on the official game forum that Voyager 6 was meant to have been thrown back in time as well as across the galaxy, an aspect mentioned in the "extras" cut-scenes of the game itself.
In the game Star Trek: Legacy, an alternate explanation was given to the creation of the Borg which states that the probe V'Ger created the Collective to serve as its heralds in its search for knowledge. However, the creation of the Borg Queen resulted in the creation of an entity that abandoned the original intent of V'Ger. This is also similar to the Shatnerverse version of events.

etc. etc.
