Select shots of the ship which couldn't be found have been replaced with CGI.
There is one shot of the Enterprise in "Encounter at Farpoint" where we see the Enterprise delivers an energy beam onto Farpoint station that reveals the squidy space creature. That shot of the Enterprise is not only new, but the beam itself now emits from the actual phaser array instead of the Captain's Yacht (Center of the saucer section). So it's both a redo and a fix.
But in fixing the shot, they made a new error by -- for some reason -- erasing all the windows on the saucer rim.

Weren't the transporter sparkles a practical effect? I thought they used the original film elements.
