many of the effects used film elements, these could simply be recomposited rather than recreated from scratch.
Really? I thought all effects for TNG (and DS9 and VOY) were done on videotape only.
The actual FX shots, like filming the models and such would have been done on film, but then composited and edited on tape. The original FX shots likely still exist on film, but would have to be put back together in a higher resolution format. This is discussed upthread; it can be done, it's just a cost/benefit issue at this point.
