It does stretch the suspension of disbelief a tad. It would've helped if Cawley had at least tried to disguise his voice a bit.
Well, this was shot at the same time as "To Serve All My Days"--with the intent that it would be released before that episode. So, Kirk really didn't need to disguise his voice: Kargh and Kirk and never met. *We* might recognize Kirk/Cawley because we've seen him so much; at that time, Kargh never had.
That intent falls apart when you consider that Kirk is featured in Kargh's simulator test. While Kargh and Kirk had never met face-to-face, the former was, at least, familiar with the latter in some fashion. That is unless the Kargh's "Test of Victories" was a tall-tale and didn't really happen, but that would render the vignette rather pointless then.
Minor aside/query: Has Kargh been featured in every NV/P2 production so far?
Kargh has been in the following so far:
"In Harm's Way"
"To Serve All My Days"
"No Win Scenario" (short)
"Blood and Fire, part 2"
And will be in the yet-to-be released:
