In context of keeping it so the Machine planet, and thus "V'Ger" still behaves at it did in not understand the "carbon units".

Having Janeway and her crew alive on ship...when that tells a different story where "V'Ger" is not really possible.

Only if we're talking about the payoff is it being an old Plymouth Voyager, this time.

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here, so bare with me. Right now I'm doing something that I've never actually done before. I'm going to watch all the Star Trek movies from the beginning to the end. I'm watching The Motion Picture currently and something dawned on me in regards to the reboot. V'Ger. I am assuming that in this alternate universe V'Ger is still the same V'Ger that we all know and love. V'Ger was tricked for lack of a better word, but not defeated as we all know. It should be just as powerful as it was in prime universe. With all of that said, isn't it safe to say that in the alternate universe, meeting up with V'Ger is unavoidable? If so, do you think a movie will be made about V'Ger in the alternate universe and would you like to see one made?? I'm just curious to other people's thoughts about V'Ger as it relates to a possible movie made in the alternate universe.
I think TMP would have been a different proposition if it were directed by Ridley Scott or Stanley Kubrick. Anything where it's not so much about action or even the dialogue, you need the film to be an atmospheric experience. Wise, god bless him, was maybe not the best choice.

In any case, I was disappointed that Voyager didn't encounter "the Machine Planet". That civilization obviously has extraordinary technology. What do they think of the Borg. Would they think 7 of 9 needs full machine conversion? Interesting possibilities, but alas...it didn't happen.

Stopping things like V'Ger, the Doomsday Machine, and the Whale Probe are a key part of the Legend of Kirk, so I certainly hope they are not scrubbed from his future. But except for the D-Day Machine, those things are not in his immediate future. So the next movie doesn't have to involve any of that.

Ilia and Decker can certainly appear. They should both be in Starfleet.

It is still about 13 years before those events would happen from were we last saw Kirk and his Enterprise.

Probably Decker, Ilia was probably still a youngster.
