Minimum success chances is 5% and the maximum is 95%. If the target race has Intelligence tech, Your chances to succesful mission execution depend from target`s tech level. Each Spy Unit make 10x damage during spy mission. If You fleet fail the mission it become visible and can be attacked by the enemy fleets. Here is a brief description of Spy Missions:
