Jem'Hadar Support Frigates are a type of Hangar Pet for Dominion characters, as well as characters of any other faction.

They are obtained and unlocked with the purchase of either Support Carrier:

They may only be equipped on any full Carrier - any vessel with two hangar bays. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Jem'Hadar Support Frigate icon (Dominion).png Launch Jem'Hadar Support Frigate.

A line of frigate pets were developed by the Dominion to aid their new carrier vessel in its role as a support carrier. Traditionally, the Vanguard Heavy Raider is a powerful vessel equipped with raider flanking and is most commonly seen accompanying other Vanguard-type vessels - sometimes even itself. The support frigate variant of the Vanguard Heavy Raider is sturdy in its own right, featuring substantial defensive armaments and a wide variety of abilities.

One wing of standard-issue (rare) Jem'Hadar Support Frigates come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:

Playable version[edit | edit source]

A Vanguard Heavy Raider.

A playable version of this hangar pet, the Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Raider, is available for Dominion characters, and may be unlocked for other factions once Tier VI in its Starship Mastery is obtained.

Modifiers[edit source]

Hangar pet performance is affected by various factors, 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.
  • Subsystem
    • Auxiliary Power level will determine the recharge rate before 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, Escort Carriers, Flight Deck Cruisers/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]

  • While the overall design of the support frigates is shared between the various craft, each variant uses their faction's traditional weapon types - Tetryon (with Photon torpedoes) for the Caitians, Plasma (with Plasma torpedoes) for the Romulans, Disruptors (with Photon torpedoes) for the Klingons, and Polaron (with Photon torpedoes) for the Jem’Hadar. Both Klingon and Romulan variants employ cloaking devices.
