Much of the TNG space VFX work consists of footage reuse, which soon grows tedious, not to mention it skips opportunities for showing the ship from more interesting angles. A bit of variety would surely be welcome, even if it doesn't go to the same lengths as TOS-R.
It's funny you should mention variety when discussing the Yamato footage because the stock footage of the Yamato approaching the Enterprise
that HTV used is the SAME FOOTAGE that will be later seen in Contagion
. So in essence, we get less variety with this remastering work than we did with the original.
