consoles on ships...do they help pets?

so...

do the consoles on ones ship also add to the values/numbers/dmg/etc to pets assigned to the ship as well?

i.e. dmg tac consoles - phsers/disruptor/etc, at X%, does the also aid dmg from pets? (if they have the same energy type)
i.e. exotic dmg consoles, same question but with sci abilities or whatnot the pet has
meh

    Far as I know...
    No.
    Nothing really augments hanger pets except for traits and maybe one or two skills from the skill tree.
    One of the recent carriers MIGHT though.

    I did edit as I think the recent carriers like the T6 Vo'Quv might have one.

    Yeah as it was said unless it specifically says it effects combat pets it shouldn't effect them, since IIRC as far as the game is concerned they're independent mobs you control in addition of your main ship not parts of said ship.

    Yep, this is exactly right.

    There are some consoles like the High Energy Communications Network that work for pets, but as stated above, they specifically list that in the description. Consoles do not effect hangar pets unless they are like this console and specifically state that they do.

    There is one exception that is not noted and that's the Jem'Hadar wingmen, they are actually boosted by consoles that add to Polaron damage. It's unknown if this is a bug or intended, but it's been that way since release.

    Swarmer Matrix is another console that specifies that it boosts hangar pets:

    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    That'd be the (Enhanced) Tholian Tetryon Grid from the Recluse/Jorogumo: https://sto.fandom.com/wiki/Tholian_Technologies_Set

    It's exclusive to Tholian ships, though.

    You can also find out what (from traits, to Doffs and even Boff abilities) boosts pets, directly or not, in the wiki when going at the end of the page of any hangar pet. For example: https://sto.fandom.com/wiki/Hangar_-_Aeon_Timeships
