Re: TMP Klingons: what were they thinking?

I think it's because they didn't really know what they were facing and probably thought they could either disable the thing or defeat it.
Do you understand the magnitudes were discussing?

Using the DEs 2 AU diameter, the size ratio between the Vger cloud and the Klingon battle cruisers is about the same as the ratio between the planet and mini-cruisers about a centimeter in length. If the target is the size of an adult human, the attackers would be about the size of a proton. How could they possibly entertain thoughts of disabling or defeating that?
