Class C Shuttlecraft are a type of Hangar Pet for Starfleet characters and their allies, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

They are obtained and unlocked with the purchase of the following Discovery-era Starfleet vessels:

They can be equipped on any vessel capable of launching hangar pets. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Class C Shuttlecraft icon (Federation).png Launch Class C Shuttlecraft.

A predecessor to Starfleet's Class F shuttle design, Class C shuttles were used as standard-issue shuttlecraft by Starfleet during the 2250s and remained in service, albeit in a civilian capacity, to at least the 2390s. Their counterpart is the Klingon Empire's own House Mo'Kai fighters. These shuttlecraft feature era-appropriate phaser visuals to match the DSC Starfleet aesthetic. Functionally, they are comparable in performance with their Mirror counterparts apart from one aspect - Class C shuttlecraft are armed with Aceton beams in place of Tractor beams.

One wing of standard-issue (rare) Class C Shuttlecraft come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:

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.
