The Orion Cutpurse fighter reflects the latest advances in Klingon Empire technology in combination with traditional Orion engineering ingenuity. They bear a strong resemblance to the Orion Interceptor-type fighters in use during the 22nd century, and may even be considered a successor to their design.

Two wings of standard-issue (rare) Orion Cutpurse Fighters come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Reflective Hull[edit | edit source]

Orion Cutpurse Fighters utilize the unique active ability Reflective Hull. This is a Hangar pet variant of the Science ability Feedback Pulse. At Rank I, this ability grants +20 Energy Damage Resistance Rating to each Hangar pet and reflects up to 20% of incoming Energy Weapon Damage back to its target. Reflective Hull I will last until it has reflected 5,000 Energy Weapon Damage. After it is depleted, the ability will go on a 10 second cooldown before being redeployed.

This is one of the only unique Hangar pet abilities with player facing stats. For higher quality variants of this pet, the ability rank is greater, buffing the active bonuses. Each Rank adds an additional +15 Energy Damage Resistance Rating and another +5,000 Energy Weapon Damage to the reflectable damage pool, for a combined total of +50% Energy Damage Resistance Rating and a damage threshold of +15,000 Weapon Damage at Rank III.

Playable version[edit | edit source]

An Orion Cutpurse fighter.

No playable version of the Orion Cutpurse Fighter 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]

  • While the overall design of each Allied Flight Deck Assault Carrier fighter pet is shared between the various craft, each variant uses their faction's traditional weapon types - Phaser (with Quantum torpedoes) for the Tellarites, Plasma (with Plasma torpedoes) for the Suliban, and Disruptors (with Photon torpedoes) for the Orions.
