When are we going to get a Federation Cloaking Device?
 
I know this might not happen, but the Federation is at war with the Klingons, Gorn, Romulans and a whole bunch of other races. You would think that the Treaty of Algeron would be null and void in this timeline. So come on devs, what are you waiting for? An engraved invitation?

I am able to surprise the Klingons with mask energy signature. I can't combat cloak, but...well...they really can't either...soooo

I want to perform surgery on a torpedo and shove it up a BoP's tail pipe. ;)

In All Good Things, the Enterprise had a cloaking device.

Janeway's shuttle in Endgame had a cloaking device.

All Good Things was an alternate universe, but Endgame wasn't. Endgame Janeway was from around the same time as STO, and her shuttle had a cloaking device..So it's possible that in STO's time period, the treaty has lapsed. But we don't really know.

I'm fine with not cloaking...

When Janeway returned to the past and altered the past by getting the Voyager home sooner rather than later an alternate universe was created.

The universe Janeway created because she interfered with the past is not the universe that the Federation had a cloak in which she had come from.

But up until the point that she came back in time, it wasn't an alternate timeline, and the shuttle had a cloak.

Oh my God paradox 101..

But it really doesn't matter, because we didn't see the Rhode Island cloak. That really would've thrown us for a loop.

Speaking of the Rhode Island..Hey, Cryptic! :)

Does the current background story of STO take place in the time line before Janeway returned or in the altered time line after Janeway returned? If on the path to 2409 by 2404 Feds never have a backstory that gives them the option to use the cloak; it would be safe to assume that we are in the alternate timeline.

mask energy signiture is the worst skill in the game, enemies can see you from 19km out regardless of anything that you can do.

We don't really know if Janeway had anything to do with the shuttle having a cloak or not. Just because she took a cloaked shuttle back in time doesn't mean she invented the cloaked shuttle and that anything at all would change when she went back in time.

So the alternate universe cloaking shuttle may have been an ability the shuttles had/Federation ships had regardless of Janeway's interference with the timeline.

Bleh. Time. Who needs it?

lol
 
watch the season ending of voyager. the reason she is an admiral is because she invented technology and tactics to get her asr home. the shuttle, senatic device and the uber torpedoes.
