Ok Lets just say for whatever reason, Jedis as you know them turned up in the Star Wars universe. Maybe Q finds out about them, while viewing the different universes, and figures how interesting these beings are. Then POOF he moves a few into The Trek Universe, right before the time of 1st contact on Earth. He takes 5 random human Jedis from the Clone Wars, right before they are killed in battle, and drops them in right when the TNG crew beams out, and Cochrane is about to meet the Vulcans.
By doing this move, Q has infected the Universe with the Force, and other worlds gain a few force infused people. Along with a few governments like:
The Klingon Empire
The Romulan Star Empire
The Ferengi Alliance
The Cardassian Union
note: Things will still go forward like before, but now you have the Jedis in the mix of things. How do you see Trek History moving forward with this one change in the timeline?
Yeah..., just like they found a DNA Enhanced Dr. Bashir at a very young age and fixed him...

Depends on which timeline Q pulls them from, the one where Lucas has it satisfyingly vague in a zen mysticism sort of way, or the one where Lucas has two decades to think about how to screw up what he made and gets irritatingly specific. Obi Wan McGuinnes describing it as an energy field or the one with Qwi Gon Neeson prattling about midichlorians?
The movies, and therefore canon, suggest that the force can be localized in strength or composition, which supports the expanded universe which contains locations and people which are dead to the force, locations in which Jedi cannot access the force and races which are "force immune." This suggests that a handful of Jedi who were bamfed into the ST universe would find themselves cut off from the force, and would likely lop off their own toes the moment they activated their lightsaber.
Or Q could just be like "**** it, it was funny to have Picard meet Xavier, midichlorians for everybody!"
Final result: "Sorry, Troi, we're all empaths now, go crash a different starship."
The Federation will quickly attempt to locate those with force powers and control them thus making the Federation "the Empire", the Romulans and Klingons will try to subdue the force weilders but learn that they can't, and join them in their epic war against the empire. The borg will simply be taken over by the mind control powers in force weilders and also aid in the struggle against the oppressive imperial forces.
lordmalak1 that sounds more like something the mirror universe would do, and in that case it wouldn't be Jedis but Sith in stead. lol As far as the origin 5 getting beamed on the enterprise and tossed in the brig. I don't see that happening so easy. With all their powers, that might be a very bad move on there part. Plus the fact Q might hide them from Picard in the 1st place, so he can effect the timeline to see what happens.
I can see 1 or 2 new Jedis being part of a Captain Archer's crew, and helping to keep that crew safe. Maybe they would find more new Jedis along the way, or even new Sith that are spawned from these other worlds.
