Scorpion Fighter Squadrons are a type of Hangar Pet for Romulan Republic characters, as well as characters of any other faction.

Rare Scorpion fighter squadrons are unlocked with the purchase of a Romulan Flagship Dreadnought Warbird, Romulan Support Carrier, or Romulan Tactical Carrier Warbird. While there is no Advanced variant, Elite Scorpion fighter squadrons can be purchased from the New Romulus branch of the reputation system at Tier 5. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Scorpion Fighter Squadron icon (Romulan).png Launch Scorpion Fighter Squadron.

Quick and versatile, Scorpion-class fighters were initially used as support craft for the Reman Scimitar. Now, they remain in service as standard-issue attack fighters, bolstering the military might of the Romulan Republic. Scorpion Fighters are comparable to Starfleet's Peregrine Fighters, the Dominion's Jem'Hadar Fighters, and the Klingon Defense Force's own To'Duj Fighters. Unlike their standard counterparts, each Scorpion fighter launched is actually a single entity that appears to be a squadron of six fighters. As each hangar bay can deploy six squadrons, each hangar bay is ultimately responsible for up to 36 fighters.

As squadron pets share the same acquisition methods as their standard counterparts, no Advanced variant currently exists in-game as Advanced Scorpion Fighters were retired in Season Nine: A New Accord.

One wing of standard-issue (rare) Scorpion Fighter Squadrons come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:
