@Harvey, I don't think a TNG-R would fare better than the TOS one with time. TOS-R was done quickly, on the cheap, and was led by someone who had never directed SFX shots before. Bless Mike Okuda for bringing so much to Trek, but he's not a director and TOS-R proves it. If you look at Elaan of Troyius, which was done toward the end, you see that there was no growth in technique. It was possibly even worse than previously done episodes.
