When it was confirmed that they'd be doing TNG-R, I was initially hoping that they'd redo all the ship shots with CGI if only to create different and newer designs than the old movie models that they were forced to reuse because of budgetary concerns. Case in point with "Yesterday's Enterprise" and the "K'Vort class battlecruisers," which were just unrealistically upscaled BoPs. They hadn't yet built the Vorcha model, which is most likely what they would have used if they had it.
However, seeing as how fantastic S1 looks, I've changed my tune. I would much prefer the model shots in HD instead of CGI replacements.
