Does anyone know why the K'T'Inga from "Heart of Glory" had it's "radiator" glow changed from blue to red?
I don't know for sure, but if I were working on the project I certainly would have chalked up the original blue as a mistake rather than the effects team's intent. (Isn't that another reuse of the TMP footage, rather than a new shot?)
Yep, that's the original Apogee VistaVision footage from Star Trek: The Motion Picture that was pulled from storage and re-scanned for TNG-R. You can see the element breakdown over at TrekCore:

It looks like the folks at CBS-Digital forgot to change the original red glow to blue to match how it was altered to look on TNG in 1988. They just went with the elements as originally shot in 1979.
