I wonder how bad would it look to upscale the 2001 FX sequences/changes/additions and put them into the film, together with certain of the extended scenes, found among the extras on the 2009 Blu ray? Has anybody attempted it yet for their own fan-edit? Did turn into a terrible mess? A very noticable dip in quality?
There are things that could be improved. I notice the correct red alert sirens and computer voice elements heard in Engineering must've been found since, in order to create the Blu ray's 7.1 sound mix.
