TMP: Decker in Command?

Is there any way the mission would've succeeded with Will Decker in command?
  • He was unwilling to go into the cloud, calling it an "unwarranted risk".
  • He recommends a phaser strike when the Enterprise had barely survived an earlier salvo from V'Ger.
  • He is reluctant to engage the Ilia-probe.

I just wonder what track he could've taken to make the mission successful? Under the conditions that he was unwilling to enter the cloud and was willing to use phaser-strikes against what was a far superior technological foe.

For what it's worth, I understand the real world reasons of Kirk's the hero... so he has to be right.
