Really enjoyed it.

Did they explain why Ortega ( the helmsman ) and the navigator ( forgot her name ) were wearing red instead of gold?

Not that I saw. Gold would typically be Command Track, while red would be Support. That's usually Engineering, but also includes groups like Security.

'Operations' I believe it's called. Command, operations, science.
Not sure what they're calling it now, so you may well be correct. According to my ancient "Star Fleet Technical Manual" it was referred to as "Engineering and Support Services." Not sure, but it appears to be from the first (Canadian) printing in 1975.

I just remembered one bit of Star Trek lore that they played fast & loose with; The Gorn. La'an Noonien-Singh said that she was captured by The Gorn and was the only survivor. Unless this was another "classified" incident The Gorn weren't encountered until the Enterprise's Cestus 3 incident.

It’s not like they’ve been ”encountered” by the federation still. There’s one surviving civilian account, but that isn’t an official contact with the federation.

When Kirk encountered them they appeared to be completely unknown to The Federation. Not even a rumour.

But the Gorn knew about the Federation, so maybe it was just Kirk who didn't know about them?
I got the impression that the Gorn didn't really know about the Federation, until the "incursion" into their space at Cestus 3. I find it hard to credit that the captain of one of the premier starships in the fleet wouldn't know about even rumours of a potentially hostile race in the area in which he was patrolling, let alone that there was an officer who previously served on the ship with a connection to those rumours. Security briefings would almost certainly cover it.

You credit the writers with too much foresight. Sometimes you just have to go along with it. Yesterday I saw an episode where warp speed was referred to as “time warp”!

Yeah, and the Botany Bay was launched in 1996, after the eugenics war / ww3, which took place in the early 21st century and were influenced by the Bell Riots of 2024…

One needs to give a little leeway and parse together the canons of differents eras the best one can.
