But if they just replaced whatever was there before with the Erstwhile CGI model they made for "The Outrageous Okona," then the original ship still remains unidentified.
That's the point though, they didn't just replace the model with a CG recreation of another model, they're using the original film negatives. The original episode used this same physical model.
No, in Bernd's essay about the reuses of the Batris, he states that the CGI Erstwhile was used to represent the Arcos. The planet is newly created with CGI too.

Well, I'm just happy we can identify the Arcos in some way, no matter whether the ship was originally supposed to be a re-use of the Erstwhile or not.
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy we can identify it now too. It's just that it doesn't solve the question of what they originally used. I always thought it was stock footage of the Husnock ship exploding over Delta Rana, since it was a reuse of the same planet.
