A line of frigate pets were developed by the Klingon Defense Force to aid the vo’DevwI-class in its role as a support carrier. Traditionally, the Ning'tao-class Refit Bird-of-Prey is equipped with quad disruptor cannons and capable of utilizing a battle cloak in tandem with its raider flanking. The support frigate variant of the Ning'tao is sturdy in its own right, featuring substantial defensive armaments and a wide variety of abilities.

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

Playable version[edit | edit source]

A Ning'tao Bird-of-Prey.

Playable versions of this hangar pet, the Ning'tao Bird-of-Prey, are available for Klingon-aligned characters.

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]

  • 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.
