The original effects elements probably don't exist at this point.
Well, in TNG they have had to use two elements from TMP thus far, the Klingon ships and the V-Ger transformation effect for Tin Man. They found the VFX elements and rescanned/recomped in HD. So *maybe* they are around somewhere? Wishful thinking I know but they could be out there in a salt mine or something.
The Klingon ship in Heart of Glory was easy...they simply had to matte out the other two ships. As to the V'ger effect used in Tin Man, that I can't tell you. It looks like they had the effect separate of the Earth background, yeah, but just because they had that shot (which is itself a composite) doesn't mean they have all or even many of the elements.
