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

They are obtained and unlocked with the purchase of the following Discovery-era Starfleet vessels:

They can be equipped on any vessel capable of launching hangar pets. Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Tactical Flyer Squadrons icon (Federation).png Launch Tactical Flyer Squadrons.

A Tactical flyer was a type of small craft used by Starfleet in the 2250s. They were considered experimental as of 2257, and were co-opted for use by Lieutenant Commander Una as fighters to be deployed in the Battle near Xahea by U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701). The Klingon Empire of this era employed a similar fighter craft, the Tactical Attack Fighter. Unlike normal fighter pets, each fighter launched is actually a Squadron of six Tactical Flyers. As each hangar bay can deploy six squadrons, each hangar bay is ultimately responsible for up to 36 Tactical Flyers.

Despite their name, the Advanced Micro Phaser Beam Arrays equipped on these pets are not visually unique. They resemble Discovery-era phaser beam visuals.

Two wings of standard-issue (rare) Tactical Flyer Squadrons come pre-loaded as part of the following vessels:

    • 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
