Oh, fantastic! There's obviously some treasures in those boxes of film. It's exciting to consider what may be discovered for future seasons. I'm trying to think of any famously missing material that may turn up...
Here's a collection of known deleted scenes:
Note that not all of them were filmed.
It's interesting that neither "The Icarus Factor" nor "Up the Long Ladder" are on that list though.
If you look at the teleplay of "The Icarus Factor" you'll see that scene A21 was cut from broadcast (in addition, scene 24 has some additional dialogue):
INT. CORRIDOR - DATA AND GEORDI
are approaching the doors to Ten-Forward.
You think Worf is going to

You are correct. He is not

this stage of his development.
Just remember, this is Wesley's
Wesley is quite competent.
Just as they approach Ten-Forward, Wesley steps up,
You guys aren't going to believe
Commander Riker just caught me
coming out of the turbolift.
So? This area isn't off limits
I know, but I've been working on
Paracelsian computations as part
of my studies and he wants them
What about Worf?

You don't expect us to --
Oh, come on. What are friends
Data reacts, very much put on the spot; then:
Go ahead. Finish your work and
We shall study Worf.
I knew I could count on you guys!
With that, Wesley heads off down the corridor, leaving
Data to face Geordi, as we:
"Up the Long Ladder" (AKA "Send in the Clones") has a lot more changes spread throughout (dialogue mostly). Scene 24 in particular was never aired:
Pulaski is treating an ancient Bringloidi. Riker and
Brenna ENTER. Pulaski runs a device over the OLD
MAN'S arm, and cures his crippling rheumatoid
arthritis. His claw-like hand relaxes and he
experimentally wiggles the fingers. Brenna is amazed.
This is magic. The old man is so pleased with this
new mobility that as Pulaski turns away to replace the
device he leans off the biobed, and pinches her on
the ass. Pulaski calmly swats his hand.
You're a fine woman, and you've
made a young man of me.
No, I've cured your arthritis,
and if you try anything more
energetic you'll probably drop
(with a leer)
I'd die happy.
He hobbles past Brenna and Riker with a wink and
another leer. Pulaski crosses to the couple.
You know how to handle men.
Yes, first you have to get their
Riker chuckles. He doesn't mind being made the butt of
a joke. Brenna crosses to Pulaski.
How did you give Joey back his

ship. I'm too ignorant to

The frustration is evident in her voice. Pulaski says
very gently --
You're interested in medicine?
I'm healer and midwife. Or I
thought I was.
Pulaski tries to comfort her.
All I've every wanted is to take
away the hurt. These wonderful
tools help me do that, but
sometimes I feel more like a
mechanic than a doctor.
Now the situation's reversed. Brenna takes Pulaski's
hand in both of hers, closes her eyes as she searches
for the healing power.
You've the hands of a healer.
You can't put that in a machine.
Suddenly there's a hell of a bond between these women.
Riker knows when he's a fifth wheel.
I'll leave you ladies to your
discussions. Dinner, Brenna?
Brenna glances at Pulaski and raises her eyebrows.

Both of the women are eyeing Riker thoughtfully.
(sotto voce to Brenna)
Oh, yes, very real.
The message is subtle -- when life offers you
something... take it. Riker knows female bonding when
he sees it. He gets the hell out of the way. Riker
As well as scene 39B:
INT. CARGO HOLD (PREVIOUSLY SCENE 34)
As many extras as can possibly be squeezed into the
hold, all dressed in scruffy immigrant clothes. An
occasional cry from a baby, chickens clucking.

Danilo, the colony's Shan'a'kee, imparts the history.
Worf is seated with Brenna, Picard ENTERS, and leans
against a wall just listening.
And after a long and gentle sleep
we awoke and there was Bringloid,
our dream world. Our companions
in the butterfly ship left us
off, and said they would leave
a guard in heaven to look out for
They flew on in the darkness -- their
search was not yet over -- but
we had found the sun, a
world, a home.
And now we have lost it.
We'll find another.
When? How long must we wait and
Picard's expression has been shifting as various
emotions and realizations strike him. He crosses
swiftly to Worf, leans in.
I finally understand. That
distress satellite was left by
the Mariposans as a way to protect
the Bringloidi. There were two
colonies on that ship.
And not terribly relevant, I know.
Still, it gives one pause for
Picard's voice trails away, and he EXITS.
And the final scene (48) is quite different:
INT. MAIN BRIDGE
Picard in the command chair, Troi is at his side. Worf
is at Tactical. Data at OPS. Supernumerary at CONN.
Riker and Pulaski ENTER from the aft turbolift.
All squared away?
The Bringloidi have reached their

But what is occurring on Mariposa
is a demonstration of
sociobiology, and the concept of
the selfish gene.
Males and females are each
pursuing their respective
reproductive strategies in an
effort to maximize their
contribution to the gene pool of
the next generation.

Troi is laughing. Riker is struggling to suppress a
smile. Data is bewildered.
How are cats in a sack romantic?
They would fight and scratch
Everyone is laughing now.
