If someeone was to magically produce the original elements of the effects footage, then perhaps that footage could be remastered and, essentially, cleaner high def versions of the original effects could've been produced, but that stuff is long gone.
No need for magic, the TOS EFX were photographic and existed on film. I hadn't heard that the EFX footage was lost at any point.

Unless you have a major trauma, the film is going to remain viable and not decay. (They no longer store stocks that turn from blue to pink in good conditions, like was the case in the JAWS era.)
But the rats can still get it.
