Are you sure about that? I thought that the original film elements still existed in the Paramount vault.
Apparently, the effects on Enterprise, though up-rezed to HD, were only actually rendered at 480p.
Perhaps, but rerendering effects isn't the same as recreating them from scratch, is it? As I understand it, rerendering a bit of special effects is a bit like recompiling a program. You don't have to write it all over again.
