Help me out here. I THINK, that Kirk and Co. only saved the universe once and that was in The Alternative Factor I think that Burnham et al in saving the spore network said they saved the universe. Both examples are kind of head scratchers. The universe must be a very fragile place to be saved by the coincidental presence of some jumped up monkeys. I can't think of any galaxy wide threats that were stopped. Sure there were various invasions and such but nothing of certainty. Closest i can think of is in PICARD where they say these fifth dimensional synths will lay waste to half the galaxy.
