Not sure I want to see every episode having deleted scenes added back in just to be doing it.
That's hardly what happened with MoaM though. 12 extra minutes of multiple cut scenes is nothing compared to 12 cut seconds of dialogue from a scene.
No but it does give an example of how things are cut to tighten the pace or slow it down or remove unneeded scenes to change a character a bit. As was mentioned earlier Phillipa was flirtatious with Picard in the final cut of The Measure of a Man, but was really a minx, tauntingly flirtatious, with the extra footage.
So yes some scenes are cut short, in every episode. Not just using one shot of the scene vs. another shot of the exact same scene. There is always more footage of completely removed scenes, scenes cut short, or dialogue removed than what is finally aired.
The great thing with MoM is that the "new" scenes fit so seamlessly that I had a hard time telling the old and "new" stuff appart. Often the added scenes felt almost as if they had always been there. Which only shows how great the writing of that epi actually was.
