Re: If you found yourself aboard the Refitprise during TMP...

I don't care which ship, event or alternate reality we're talking about - if I somehow found myself aboard the Enterprise, I'd demand to be let off at the nearest starbase, and hitch my way to Risa from there.

I'd put NASA's Voyager 6 transmission code on loud speakers, catch V'Ger off guard, and cause the whole ship/cloud thing to dissipate in an instant, also saving the life of Captain Decker.

That depends: do I appear on the ship in the scene where Scotty's bringing Kirk to the spacedock, so my first experience is sitting through five minutes and change of interminable 2001-wannabe symphony music before I get to talk to somebody useful?

Same idea but slightly different situation.
TNG Season 1 Finale - The Neutral Zone
What if you were one of the people they woke up, but being a ST fan, you knew them and what is going to happen?
How weird would you feel!!!

Re: If you found yourself aboard the Refitprise during TMP...

I'd probably check with my Doctor and make sure my dosage of Prozac and Valium didn't need adjusted before doing anything else...

Take the job of managing Ten Forward before that Guinan person gets there. I'd be the ultimate wise person too, since I know how every episode ends.

You wouldn't be a ST fan since Star Trek doesn't exist in the ST Universe.

Re: If you found yourself aboard the Refitprise during TMP...

But Conan O'Brien and the Three Stooges do (see Enterprise).

If both Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and the Curly Shuffle exist in the Trek universe of both timelines that's a pretty good start.

I would warn them, though would probably go to Spock and explain the situation to him in a calm and thought out manner, so that he could then deal with Kirk.

Ilia would be saved, Decker wouldn't need to sacrifice himself, V'ger could be stopped before it got into Earth orbit (thanks to the sacrifice of Ensign Ricky). Afterwards, Kirk would go back to HQ where he could get doughy behind a desk, Decker would resume his rightful command, Spock would return to Vulcan, McCoy would return to his civilian life and the new Enterprise crew could head out on many wonderful adventures.
Except... Khan hijacks Reliant and Genesis as normal. But not being able to lure Kirk in since he's behind a desk, he takes Reliant to Earth and uses the Genesis device just to kill Kirk. His reign on the New Terran Empire is glorious but alas short as the planet destabilizes and any escape is impossible due to the arrival of the whale probe. Once Praxis blows up, this leaves the Romulans as the dominant power in the region.
...until their star goes nova...

Re: If you found yourself aboard the Refitprise during TMP...

The Romulan Star Empire is vast.

They could find another imperial seat, and it would only take weeks to evacuate the planet of billions, the rest of the star system probably hours since they're already mobile and poised.

Reeman slave labour can be abandoned.

To that extent, they could simply rename another planet "New Romulus" or even just "Romulus." Given enough time, the destruction of the original homeworld could become academic.

The thread title + original post = Pleasantville (1998). If only it could have been explained as logically.

Did the Universe continue after Nero and Spock left?

It's could have simply gone "poof!"

The original Romulan Homeworld is Vulcan.

They've moved before, they'll move again.
