I didn't hear you people going this bonkers when Zephram Cochrane of ALPHA CENTAURI in METAMORPHISIS mysteriously teleported to BOZEMAN, MONTANA in FIRST CONTACT... The SHAT was right... GET A LIFE!
The visit to Cochrane in First Contact took place in a time WAY before TOS. His presence on Earth at the time the Next Generation crew travelled back through time on Earth WAS the time he was supposed to be there according to canon, to invent warp drive. "Metamorphasis" took place many years thereafter.
