The 25th century Callisto-class light escort is Starfleet's hangar pet of choice for their powerful Jupiter-class Carriers. They bare a remarkable resemblance to the Aquarius-class light escort. With their emphasis on forward firepower, these escorts may be considered as an equal match for the Klingon Defense Force's Birds-of-Prey.

Note: Despite using the term "Light Escorts", these pets are "Frigates", not "Light Escorts", a vessel type equivalent to a Raider.

Standard-issue (rare) Callisto Light Escorts do not come pre-loaded as part of any Starfleet vessels' standard equipment; they must be purchased once unlocked.

Playable version[edit | edit source]

A Callisto Light Escort.

No playable version of the Callisto Light Escort currently exists in-game.

Modifiers[edit source]

Hangar pet performance may be affected by various factors (unless stated otherwise), all listed below.

  • Innate
    • All Hangar pets are immune to warp core breaches and have an unique version of the Strategist specialization ability "Layered Defense", known as "Layered Defenses III", which makes them immune to a single torpedo hit every 30 seconds.
    • Starships with Hangar Bays by default can use Carrier commands, a set of four abilities which issue orders to your Hangar pets.
  • Subsystem
    • Auxiliary Power level will determine the recharge rate before a Hangar pet can be launched again; if Auxiliary subsystem is knocked offline, the Hangar will not operate.
  • Skill Tree
    • Skill Nodes
    • Unlocks
      • Adm eng fed.png 5 points in Engineering track: Hangar Health: Hangar pets have an additional 10% Maximum Hull Capacity.
      • Adm tac fed.png 5 points in Tactical track: Hangar Weaponry: Hangar pets deal an additional 10% Damage from all sources.
  • Starship Mastery (Carriers, Flight Deck Carriers, Flight Deck Raptors)
    • Mastery passive quick deployment tac fed.png Quick Deployment: 20% recharge time reduction to launching Carrier pet crafts; +50% Rank Up XP for all Hangar Pets.
  • Duty Officers
    • Flight Deck Officer: Reduces the time to recharge Hangar Bay abilities after use.
    • Flight Deck Officer: Increases the accuracy of any carrier pet launched from your Hangar bays while they are in Intercept mode.
    • Flight Deck Officer: Increases the damage of any carrier pet launched from your Hangar bays while they are in Escort mode.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to the hangar pet rebalance released as part of Season Thirteen: Escalation on April 25, 2017, Callisto Light Escorts were one of many pets with the Scratch the Paint ability. With the rebalance, this ability was removed and made innate for all hangar pets. As such, Callisto Light Escorts received the following changes:
    • Normal Callistos now have Cannon: Scatter Volley 2 instead of 1.
    • Advanced and Elite Callistos now have Cannon: Scatter Volley 3 instead of 2.
