you will have to read-in those tapes one by one to rebuild the data.

The header info is still in NBU catalogs. This info does not get archived along with the 'files' files.

You will probably need to expire the original images, then import tapes. 

When you expire the tapes, you need to prevent them from being overwritten - write protect them and move to a non-backup pool.

Marianne is correct, you will need to expire the images, but first physically write protect the tapes.  Then run phase 1 and phase 2 import.
