It could also be that any changes to history by the Temporal Cold War were ultimately negligible, and the timeline eventually sorted itself out to still lead into the future we're familiar with.
That's my take on it.

I think at the conclusion of the TCW, Trek's history was largely preserved. The Xindi attack on Earth may not have been mentioned onscreen in TOS, TNG, DS9, & VOY, but it might have been so offscreen.
And resulted in Riker and Troi looking 11 years older at the time of "The Pegasus".
That's simply the real-world difference of a later television production trying to match an earlier one with the same actors.

The Borg changing established history in FC, thus leading to the events of ENT "Regeneration", could go some way toward explaining how, in VOY, humanity had knowledge of the Borg well before Picard met them in TNG "Q Who?".
Star Trek: Generations would explain that too if El-Aurian refugees in the late 23rd-Century told Starfleet their world had just been destroyed by the Borg.
