Re: The bridge sets from TNG.

Several of the sets were recreated for the Enterprise finale, but the bridge wasn't among them.

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'.
Expense. You don't ship an entire film crew to Vegas for a few shots for a show like that, have to pay to rent the facility, teamsters to move equipment, etc. Cheaper to reuse something already in the scene dock at the studio.
