It would never happen but I would pay real money if the visual effects where recomposed in the same way CBS D is remastering TNG for ST 1-6 instead of half-hearted attempts at cleaning them up with DNR. I'd imagine all the negatives are still stored away and it wouldn't cost anything near the re-post production of 178 episodes. At the very least rescan the movie negatives again and give us a fresh print.
As above...

The original effects elements probably don't exist at this point.
Yeah, didn't an old friend of ours hear that Trumbull wound up throwing a lot of TMP vfx elements away because of space limitations around the time of BLADE RUNNER? That still puts the blame on Paramount, since they should have wanted all that stuff to store in-house to repurpose.
