Default Am I Stupid or just unobservant?

I watched Future's End Part 1 for about the 8th time and it is only now that I realise that the hippy who saw the timeship land in the first place was Henry Starling.

Was that very obvious to everyone else? I had always wondered how he had got his hands on it in the first place.

If I remember correctly, he had a tattoo to make it clear to the viewer that it's him...

And if I remember correctly, he was played by the same actor
so, yes, it was very obvious for me

For me too. ED BEAGLEY JR. Was the actor, I remember thinking he looked a little old to be a hippy. Does anyone here also think. Henry Starling was one of the worst villians?
What really surprised me was the homeless man that turns out to be Capt. Braxton.

I supoose I had never really been paying much attention before. But now it's quite obviously Ed Begley Jr.

Henry Starling was a great villain because he didn't care about anyone. Just profit. The Ferengi would have loved him.

I didn't find him a credible villian, a CEO of a twentieth century company taking on a Starship from the 24th. c? Come on!

But with 29th Century technology. And he nearly made it. Although it would have been a pretty boring episode if Janeway and co had beaten him on their first meeting.

He became one becuase he found the timship in 1967 when he was a nobody hippie. He'd "Invent" stuff based on the technology he could figure out, or got Braxton to tell him about. That's how he got to where we see him in the story.
