In principle it should not change, in practice it will depend on your
digitzation accuracy. While the MRI coordinate frame is determined by your
one Freesurfer recon so it (of course) will not change between
measurements, the head coordinate frame on the other hand is determined by
the locations of LPA/Nasion/RPA that you digitized for any given
measurement. So if you are confident that your digitization procedure
recorded the locations of these physical landmarks identically in each
measurement, then the trans should not change. Regardless, I would check by
loading the subsequent recordings in mne coreg, and load the trans from the
first recording to see how good it is. At the very least it should give you
a very good starting point for making a new, slightly adjusted one if
