but Kirk Thatcher somehow remembers part of the original timeline.
This really didn't need an explanation. Yeah, it's the same punk, but in this universe (pick one):

*Evil Kirk & Evil Spock went back in time to abduct some whales, and what happened to him in that version of events is something that would cause you untold nightmares;

*HE JUST GREW THE FUCK UP BUT HE FORGOT HIS AIRPODS AT HOME SO HE'S BLASTING SOME MUSIC ON WAY TO HIS DEAD END JOB OKAY

*But also he's got a thing for leggy blondes who choke him, and this was a confusing moment for him

And in the first episode Guinan said she can choose to look older (as she’s apparently aged more between 2379 and 2401 than she did between 1893 and 2365) but omitted to mention she can also choose to look completely different.
Yeah, they should've just omitted any reference to why Whoopi Goldberg looks like she's aged 30 years, but I think they sometimes worry that Star Trek fans want explanations for everything.

Having said that, Ito Aghayere was fantastic as a young(er) Guinan.

I don’t think it’s fair to complain about younger-looking Guinan. Trek — and many other shows — have shown younger or older versions of the same character. When your choices are either recasting or using de-aging effects that still can’t cross the uncanny valley, recasting is easily the better choice.

Besides, this younger Guinan still looks closer to Whoopi than the guy they cast to play aged-up Wesley back in TNG S1. [Wink]

Are we not gonna talk about Agnes Jurati and the Borg Queen!?! Nice carry over from last week. The Borg Queen is just so… ominous. With the subtle eye gazes and looks. Why did she scream for Agnes to come back!?! A+BQ = Best part of the episode (apart from Kirk Thatcher).

You think she's ominous? I think she's annoying. She sounds like half my friends' shitty moms growing up.

I've seen some clips and the Borg Queen casting is weird for me, because that actress was just painfully cute on Enterprise. She (and the little fanservice stunt-cast of Rene Auberjonois) carried an otherwise mediocre plot-rehash episode.

So when this lady in Borg getup smiles, I just see "hot blonde" in my head.
