That's a nice detail about La Forge's life: his wife, his career choices. To me it seems like he's doing better in this universe than in canon.
Hmm, how does Picard know that the cube ship belongs to the Borg? He asks about the Borg ship but where did he take the name from?
Ah, the wonderful, multifunctional deflector technology that is the answer to every problem. Very startrekish ;)
And now what? Troi and Picard are assimilated? Pulaski's gone? I really hope to see some continuation of this story :)

Oh, no, they're just about to meet the Borg, aren't they?
Q, as always, talks in riddle and in spite of babbling doesn't really say anything. His "warnings" are more of insults and not helpful at all.
I don't expect the Borg to be as we know it. I'm not sure how events with Narada could have influence the collective, but I'm certain you have something planned. I'm also sure that the crew of the Enterprise will not like it.

And more differences revealed: Riker has a beard, La Forge without his VISOR but with implants and Pulaski as Chief Medical Officer. And most noticeable: Riker and Troi hadn't met before.
Let me guess, the remarkable admiral is McCoy, isn't it?

JJ Abrams's "Encounter at Farpoint"--an interesting idea. I'm especially intrigued by the unification of the surviving Vulcans with Romulans. Were the Vulcans absorbed by the Romulans and their culture? After all, both races were separated long enough to develop into different cultural and political entities, so such a meld could happen in many different ways with different outcomes.
Seems like Abramsverse brought some changes to USS Enterprise-D--Yar is not there, Wesley is a cadet, the Crushers serve on the Stargazer--but not too many to make the ship and crew unrecognisable for us. And of course Q is as annoying as always and as arrogant as ever. I wonder how different they are going to be, if at all, when we have a better look at them and into their lives.
