I suppose they would fight each other. Maybe if they were smart enough (probably not) they would form teams and start a huge, endless robotic war.

Could be wrong about this, but I don't think they fight each other since they don't list other probes as interesting targets to be scanned and communicated with.

If it were just the Kohr-Ah involved, I would say the Probes would eventually crush them. But the green Ur-Quan would figure a way past this for sure. They'd either find the Slyandro and fix the problem or disable a probe, reverse engineer it, and figure out the self-destruct code themselves.

then the probes wouldn't start communicating, they'd just go strait to attacking the other probes.

I declare this a moot point.

Anyway, I'm sort of surprised the Dnyarri never hatches a plan to bring down the Ur-Quan by the end if you don't drop by and take him.

From m-w.com:

Main Entry: 3moot
Function: adjective
1 a : open to question : DEBATABLE b : subjected to discussion : DISPUTED
2 : deprived of practical significance : made abstract or purely academic

But really, isn't the original question moot to begin with?

Lets not forget that the probes eventually tells from where they came from... the ur-quan will go there, get the destruction code and the war is over!

The slyrandro will give it to them because they remember the Ur-quan being nice. (Though they also remember them being brown)

The slylandro are nice, they don't want their probes killing people.
The urquan may remember where the slylandro live.

The UrQuan remembering the Slylandro is irrelevant.  The probes don't mention the slylandro (unless you meant that when they see the coordinates, they'd see that it's the slylandro homeworld, then the Ur-Quan would say, "Oh Yeah, the floating gas bags").

Given the Kohr-Ah mindset, they'd probably tell the Slylandro that after they deliver the destruct code they will all be cleansed.  Depending on whether or not the Slylandro want to act in self defense, they might be willing to let the probes eternally battle the Kohr-Ah.

Maybe they WON'T cleanse them since they can't leave the planet and they are not really a threat... the probes came from another race - the melnorme so maybe the koar-ah will see it and decide not to kill them. After all, EVEN the precursers couldn't get them out of their orbit!

It really depends on who gets there first. If they even bothered to check gas giants, the Kohr-Ah would inform the Slylandro of their "filth" status and incinerate them with no discussion. They'd do the same thing to the Melnorme which is why they take off before that part of the game occurs. If the Ur-Quan found the planet, the problem would be solved and the Ur-Quan would keep the Slylandro a secret.

Lets not forget we are talking about very advance and smart races. I am sure they could find a solution to shut up "auto pilot" or something like that. But in the end, the Melnorme will help them since the probes will be a problem for them. No sentient races = no one to trade with.

P.S

I am sure the probes don't count Melnorme ships as "objects".

I'm sure the probes do see the traders as objects. The melnorme would have warned the slylandro, if they forsaw this change.
