Harvey, you're not getting it.

The show was shot on film, as was most* of the model footage I believe. But all of the post and FX work was done in video. ALL of the visual post production would have to be redone.
  • So if someone fires a hand phaser, the phaser effect will have to be created newly from scratch.
  • Transporter effects.
  • Viewscreens, or any display readout.
  • Holodeck effects.
  • All of the post effects for model shots, even a simple flybye would require new engine glows.
  • Any shot with a window that didn't feature the static star backdrop, even simple warp streaks.
All of this has to be created again, and that would in no way be the original show anymore.
