Right - If it was using is regular weapons the Vindcator would have looked like swiss cheese. This is what the Chmmr have to say about it:  
What more can you tell me about this Sa-Matra?

we only glimpsed it once, when it devastated our most powerful fleet
it was several times the size of your vessel
with a host of unusual weapons protruding from its scabrous hull
but the most dangerous feature of the sa-matra was its annihilation toroids...
with this weapon they could vaporize ships from the far side of a solar system
or cut broad swaths of devastation across a planet in seconds.

How would you destroy a planet? Note; I don't mean bombard it - I mean destroy it!

I can beat a marauder in a probe, but I can also beat a probe in a marauder. I'm faily sure my probe skill is better than my marauder skill (its strange but I dont use the marauder that much). I'm guessing that the kohr-ah are better pilots than the probes. Therefore, the korh-ah would win.

The Kohr-ah Have a huge fleet and the Sa-matra but the probes arenít actively trying to fight the Kohr-ah. And the kohr-ah will not actively seek out and destroy them since they are not a sentient race to be cleansed. The probes would spread to places to where the kohr-ah have yet explored and continue to reproduce at a rate that is staggering. The kohr-ah can fight them off quite easily but they will fall victim to countless attacks slowly eating away their fleet. Slowly and eventually the probes will eliminate any ships that donít stay close to the Sa-Matra. And even the mighty Sa-matra will begin to breakdown and then the probes will own the galaxy in peace. Of coarse this would take thousands upon thousands of years.

Only if they perceive them as a threat. They would not be very threatening at first since they donít cluster together like living beings do. Kill like 10 probes to 100 alien ships then 30 to a hundred and then they explode on you and they are in every corner of the galaxy like bacteria.

I agree with this. The probes' growth is exponential so even if the Kohr-Ah take an active stance against the probes, they won't be able to kill them all. And the probes will neither be seeking out the Kohr-Ah nor fleeing from them, so the Kohr-Ah will probably not be able to predict their movements.

Then it's a stalemate; A pocket of Kohr-Ah & Kzer-Za living in close proximity to the Sa-Matra, and constantly battling a sea of probes until they happen to eventually capture one, reverse-engineer it, and discover the destruct code.  The Melnorme might also change the destruct code on some new probes to do battle with the Kohr-Ah.

Which brings up a question I had never considered: Do probes fight each other? That would mean that there would be some limit to the total possible number of probes.
