Stalker Fighter Squadrons are a type of Hangar Pet for Starfleet characters and their allies, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

They are unlocked with the purchase of any Caitian carrier:

Stalker Fighters are exclusive to Caitian vessels capable of launching hangar pets. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Stalker Fighter Squadron icon (Federation).png Launch Stalker Fighter Squadron.

Agile and stealthy, Caitian Stalker-class fighters come equipped with tetryon cannons and its unique Thoron generator, a kinetic weapon analogous to a torpedo launcher. Unlike its normal counterpart, each Stalker 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.

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

Playable version[edit | edit source]

Stalker Stealth Fighters in squadron formation.

A playable Small Craft version of this hangar pet, the Stalker Stealth Fighter (in single and not squadron form), is available for Starfleet-aligned players. This small craft also includes a non-combat space pet.

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]

  • The announcement blog for the Cross Faction Support Carrier Bundle lists the Stalker's Thoron Pulse (or Thoron Generator as per the ingame fighter tooltip) as a "Thoron Torpedo Launcher". While it is analogous to a torpedo, this moniker is incorrect.
  • It is not currently known what "Hull Signature Masked" means, or if this has any direct effect on perception. It may be similar to the Intelligence vessel innate, Warp Signature Masking.
