USS Arcos.jpg


Class: Freighter
Affiliation: United Federation of Planets
Status: Destroyed (2367)

The Arcos was a 24th century Federation freighter. Tan Tsu served aboard the Arcos in the 2360s.

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 Turkana IV Alliance. They were later rescued by an away team from the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Legacy")

Background information Edit

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia this vessel was a Deneva-class (β) starship, with the registry NCC-6237. (citation needededit)

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.
