The answer to Decker's question may very well by "No."
Bullshit. I don't believe for a second that you really believe that. Spock merely believed that they alone could not save Rigel.
Indeed. Either way, Decker is asking the question, not making a declaration. If Spock was in any mood to debate him to the point of accuracy, he would probably state that it was ONE of their main duties in addition to their duty to collect any information on possible natural or artificial hazards and pass that information on to their home ports.

In short, Decker's asking a loaded question, and Spock is brushing him off.

Can you name a single instance where a scientific mission took priority over a military mission?
Off the top of my head:
The Galileo Seven - Kirk delays his transport mission to explore the quasar and finally has to be overruled by the commissioner to get back on task.
