The Apple let Altaïr cheat death by reincarnated as the person we know to be Desmond. This explains why Altaïr looks exactly like Desmond, and why he carries the same exact scar. This also lets Altaïr use the apple and ''not'' turn out to be a villain.
* Except that it's pretty much established in the first game that Desmond looks exactly like Altaïr because the Animus is letting Desmond impose his face over Altaïr's in order to make him more comfortable in the Animus...which pretty much means we actually have no idea what Altaïr "actually" looks like.

** Thrown for a loop, though, with ''[=AC2=]''. Not only does Ezio have the scar (which would match with the above information) but we see how he gets it in the beginning of the game. So either people from Desmond's family have a natural predilection for ugly scars, or the Animus decided to rationalize Desmond's face.

* Confirmed, he swam (in a cutscene and we don't see him actually swimming but he jumps into the sea from a ship) in the DS/iOS game. The event was referenced in AC2's codec pages.

Looking through a persons life by reading their descendants "genetic memory"? A big case of YouFailBiologyForever. However, time travel is hinted to exist, and the Abstergo seems to have had access to technology that lets them mess with peoples heads, like the Piece of Eden. Its possible they combined those two things, and use the Animus to read the mind of someone in the past. They just use Desmond to lock on to his ancestor and the images Desmond sees are straight from Altaïr's mind.

** Also, cases of poor research and "You Fail X" are covered in the plot: why do the marks, real people we can look up in an encyclopedia, not die in the right way or the appropriate times? The Templars made up false history to cover up the Assassins' work. Why do we have technology? The Templars reverse-engineered stuff from Those Who Came Before and selected people to pretend to invent it. Why do we think LeonardoDaVinci never got his flying machine working? The Templars deleted it from history, assuming anyone who would write it down heard about Ezio taking flight to begin with. Why does genetic memory exist when we "know" science has proven it's an impossible fantasy? The Templars and Pieces of Eden are responsible for what the public thinks science has and hasn't done. Is it a {{handwave}}? Yes, but it's a very good one, because it's [[MagicAIsMagicA always consistent and an important plot point]], not just a random AuthorsSavingThrow.

[[WMG: The Apples will be used to save the world in a different way than the first attempt.]]
Juno mentioned that, as a special property of the Apples power, and i paraphrase: "If a hundred people sat enthralled then they may make a wall disappear if they will it away."
In the end, the first civilization sent the apples into space after using it to control people, hoping to "enthrall" everyone. What if instead of trying to enthrall people all at once (the space sending example) then saying the necessary words, you could use the special property or power of the apple spread it slowly. You create a religion so to speak. After this is done, keep the apple with you and use faith or the special reality warping property of the apple to will the disaster away.
* Further, i guess someone wanted the human/precursor hybrids dead for their immunity to the eden artifacts.
* further, oh look, no need to free juno.

** Desmond was born in an Assassin compound, where the majority of Assassins are descendants of Assassins. It's possible that Lucy is also the descendant of an Assassin, perhaps the female Templar.

* Seems like an extension of the idea that you're desynchronized with every hit you take, implying that Altaïr was''never'' hit even once.

* In this troper's opinion, the "memory" part of the assassinations extends only up to the moment the Hidden Blade lands on the mark's throat. During the {{final speech}}es, the entire background looks just like when you're about to be desynchronized, signifying that this part is outside of what actually transpired. Perhaps it's a glimpse of Altaïr's thoughts as his victim lays dying? There is a difference between recalling what happened in the past and reminiscing on what it felt like being there during that experience...
