The shields still look TV-quality on the Klingon ships; the explosion in the sun looks TV-quality; decloaking of the warbird looks early 90s TV-quality. They are really missing out on the chance to really upgrade, update, and fix things to make them look much better and more modern.
On the other hand, there's the argument that any attempt to modernize the effects (rather than the high-quality, faithful restorations we're getting from CBSD) would result in an incongruous viewing experience, akin to the Star Wars Special Editions. It's a late-80s, early-90s TV show after all and nothing is ever going to change that.
