Re: The bridge sets from TNG.
It always surprised me that Berman and co never took the opportunity to shoot a scene or two on the replicated version at the Las Vegas Hilton, not even for sequences featuring Galaxy Class ships (as in Voyager's "Timeless"). Admittedly, that version of the bridge probably wasn't properly built to be a 'shooting set'.
Even while the set was still standing, it wasn't always used for other Galaxy
-class ships (see the Odyssey
on DS9). I'm not surprised they didn't pony up to go do what's essentially location shooting for "Timeless".
