HTV's mistakes were all VFX-related. The pure live-action footage in TNG Season 2 looks excellent.
I'm not overly familiar with the X-Files, but are there any comparable FX shots that demonstrate what they've learned since then?
Well that's the thing, the X-Files is more like a 90's sitcom or drama. AFAIK, it didn't make extensive use of bluescreen inserts and of course didn't have multipass shots of models that need to be correctly re-composited. I believe most things were done in camera. So for HTV they should have a much easier time, they mostly just get to do film scanning, episode conforming, and then recreating the opening/closing titles/credits.
