The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Gunboat was designed as the workhorse of the Odo's new Dominion fleet and can be seen as the successor to the still in-use Jem'Hadar attack ship. Powerful and armed to the teeth with Dominion weaponry, they are more than capable enough to take on the forces of the Hur'q.

Standard-issue (rare) Jem'Hadar Vanguard Gunboats come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Evasive Burst[edit | edit source]

Vanguard Gunboats come equipped with a unique active ability named Evasive Burst. Visually and perhaps mechanically, it appears identical to the player ability Evasive Maneuvers. It provides a brief increase to Flight Speed, Turn Rate, and Defense for the pet. With each pet variant, the ability gains another rank, presumably buffing the active bonus. No player facing stats exist for this ability.

Playable version[edit | edit source]

A Jem'Hadar Vanguard Gunboat.

No playable version of the Vanguard Gunboat currently exists in-game.

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]

  • Although all versions of the Vanguard Gunboats list them as having Attack Pattern Lambda, neither the appropriate buff nor debuff on the enemy have been observed being cast during player testing.
  • Additionally, the pets seem to have an undocumented ability in the form of Beams: Overload I/II/III (presumably upgrading with each pet variant) in addition to Beams: Fire at Will.
