You can watch TNG "Q Who" and "BOBW" without ever watching ENT "Regeneration" and you would know that the reason the Borg invaded Federation space was because of their initial encounter with the ENT-D . How they damaged a cube, and miraculously (thanks to Q) escaped a pursuing cube.
The cube in "Q Who" was already headed in the direction of the Alpha Quadrant (thanks to the message from Regeneration) when the Ent-D encountered it.

^ Or was it the message sent by the throat/neck alien slugs from TNG Conspiracy. Remember the Borg were supposed to be insectoid cybernetic race but that was changed to humanoid because of budget?

Touché though good sir. I never thought that the cube in Q Who may be on it's way to the Alpha quad. I'll have to watch it again to see if you're correct about that.

Also remember the Borg we're already in the Alpha and Beta Quads since they were attack Federation and Romulan outposts in TNG The Neutral Zone. That could account for the cube headed toward Earth in Q Who and BOBW.

Re: First Contact alternate timeline

Is it possible for a trip to the past to be both a predestination paradox and something else? In other words, you go to the past because you're supposed to, you do what you're supposed to but you maybe do another thing or two that isn't part of what you were supposed to do and that has consequences.

Re: First Contact alternate timeline

Let's say there's two timelines:

Original: 2063 (Zefram makes flight himself), then TOS, then TNG/DS9/VOY

New: 2063 (Zefram has help), ENT, TOS, then TNG/DS9/VOY

Would there be an NX-01 in the original without the crew of the Enterprise coming back in time and interfering with history? Even unintentionally pre-choosing the name 'Enterprise' for the first vessel? I know chronologically they couldn't have known of Enterprise in TMP or TNG, but there was no mention of it on the history walls. Could that be taken to mean the NX-01 or whatever it was originally meant to be wasn't 'Enterprise' or does the Next-Gen wall represent UFP ships called Enterprise?

Re: First Contact alternate timeline

Yeah, in the original timeline, the prequel series would've been "Star Trek: Horizon". Or just maybe "Valiant".
