A Valkis-class dreadnought with deployed Craeul frigates

Craeul Frigates are a type of Hangar Pet for Romulan Republic characters.

They are obtained and unlocked with the purchase of the Faction Romulan Republic.png Valkis Temporal Heavy Dreadnought Warbird, and are exclusive to that vessel. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Craeul Frigates icon (Romulan).png Launch Craeul Frigate.

Playable version[edit | edit source]

A Craeul frigate.

No playable version of the Craeul frigate 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, Craeul frigates 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, Craeul frigates received the following changes:
    • Normal Craeul Frigates now have Emergency Power to Weapons 1.
    • Advanced and Elite Craeul Frigates now have Emergency Power to Weapons 3 instead of Emergency Power to Weapons 1, and the Elite versions will use it significantly more frequently.
  • While the overall design of each 26th Century Dreadnought frigate pet is shared between the various craft, each variant uses their faction's traditional energy weapon types - Phaser for Starfleet, Plasma for the Romulans, and Disruptors for the Klingons. All variants share Quantum torpedoes as their projectile weapon.
