I was looking at the (new) carrier pet window and noticed on my danubes icons (within the pet status box)
Every so often, the Danubes will gain a "Star" underneath their icon.. I think it goes up to 4 stars..

Is this some kind of bonus for them staying alive through several fights ?
Or what exactly is this doing ? if anything ?

From Tribble patch notes when this was implemented:

Hangar Pet Ranks

All Hangar Craft are now capable of gaining up to 5 Ranks which will improve their performance over time.
These Ranks are slowly gained based upon the time they spend in combat without dying.
Reaching Rank 5 requires a total of 5 minutes of active Combat time.
Each time a Hangar Craft ranks up, it receives a 25% Hull HP heal, as well as gaining additional stat buffs:
+5/10/15/20/25% Maximum Hull HP
Tachyon Drones, Siphon Drones and Shield Repair Drones will instead gain +10/20/30/40/50% Max HP, due to their limited combat utility.
Runabouts, Delta Flyers and all Frigate Hangar Craft will instead only gain +2/4/6/8/10% Max HP, due to their higher starting base value.
+2/4/6/8/10% Damage Bonus
Non-Damaging Hangar Pets gain unique bonuses:
Tachyon Drones will drain -10 more shields per tick, per Rank.
Shield Repair Drones will repair 10% more shields per tick, per Rank.
Siphon Drones do not currently gain in effectiveness as they Rank Up, other than Max HP.
