Indeed. It was a beautiful move to tie the first Borg story, "Q Who?", and the last (ignoring VOY) one, FC, together with one of those nice causality paradoxes of time travel.
Furthermore, the episode indicated with Cochrane's story about cybernetic creatures from the future that things tend to get forgotten or ignored over time. Who is nowadays familar with details from the 19th century and why should historical knowledge increase so dramatically only because of new technologies?
That's why complaining about the ENT Borg episode or their indirect presence in GEN (the El-Aurian survivors should have told the Federation who attacked them) is unjustified IMO.

Furthermore, why are Borg or Ferengi in ENT supposed to be bad while Gorn and Tholians are supposed to be good? This is rather based on love for TOS than reasonable criticism.

I'm a little unfamiliar with the first TNG Ferengi episode. Was it stated there that Picard was making first contact? I never cared much for the Ferengi, so that whole Enterprise episode never bothered me canon-wise,

I am pretty sure TNG showed first contact with the Ferengi.

Wasn't the second Ferengi show, "The Battle", about Picard meeting a bunch of Ferengis a few years or decades earlier on the Stargazer, where he performed the famous Picard maneuver?
Perhaps it was a situation without visual contact, like pre "Balance of Terror" Romulan contacts.

Anyway, who will know in the 24th century that two hundred years ago, a bunch of guys with big ears boarded the NX-01 besides a history professor specialized in Earth Starfleet history?

Good question. I'm not sure if Picard knew the vessel attacking the Stargazer was Ferengi.

Your second point is right on target!

Yes, the official First Contact was in the TNG episode 'The Last Outpost', but.....

Indeed it transpired that Picard had actually already encountered the Ferengi 9 years earlier, as described in 'The Battle'. Though he didn't know they were Ferengi til later.

why?
because it is a really good show.
the only reason why people didnt like it is because t didnt have any trek in it, but if it were not a trek show people would like it. So who are we to take it off the air. I have just recently been watching a few episodes and i love it!

It was that terrible pop song at the beginning that killed it!

That garbage also was a turn off - or, at least, a fast-forward when I used to record it.

Yes, the theme song still makes me cringe every time...ugh! I do like the end credits theme though. It should have been the opening theme as well.
