In 2367, the Arcos was destroyed by a warp core breach over Turkana IV. The ship's two-man crew survived in an escape pod, but landed on the war-torn planet where they were captured by the Alliance. They were later rescued by an away team from the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Legacy")
The Arcos was seen very briefly before it exploded in "Legacy", but the studio model used to represent the ship was not identifiable until 2013. In that year the remastered version of the episode was released, and there it could be discerned that it was a reuse of the Batris model, first seen in "Heart of Glory". However, as the Turkana IV background was recreated as a digital element by Max Gabl, the CGI counterpart of the ship, created by Douglas E. Graves for "The Outrageous Okona", had to be used.
