Time for a new Treaty!
 
Now that the Federation and the Romulans are going to be allies in the war against the Klingon empire, it's high time that Starfleet utilize their Romulan friends to accentuate each others' strengths.

Of course I mean ... it's time for the Romulans to start equipping their federation allies fleet with ...

CLOAKING DEVICES!

Have at it canoneers! I want your thoughts on the potential for gain here for both the Romulan Republic and the Federation in their war efforts. Romulan Cloaks on Fed ships! We know it can happen. Kirk stole one. Pressman installed one. And the Romulans made one work on the Defiant. Been there, done that. Testing stages over. Time to mass produce this capability. And make PVP more interesting!

You're not the only one getting Romulan "allies" be prepared for that.

Oh and why is it you Feds want everything the Kdf has but freak out when its the other way around? Not saying you personally do that, just wondering if you can provide some insight.

I actually looked to that in a bluebooking thing I did for my fleet RP (my main captains a Tac Retro, and the fact that it has a cloaking device has been a plot point of various RP moments).

The answer I gave was that the Treaty of Algernon specifically says that the Federation will not develop cloaking technology, but says nothing about cloaking technology that is found and repaired via right of salvage. Now, when there was a healthy Romulan Star Empire, Starfleet wouldn't have dreamed of trying to utilize such a bull**** loophole.

Now that the RSE is effectively destroyed, and has no political power or standing army to enforce the Treaty of Algernon?

Well, now Starfleet has put cloaking technology in a few ships. But they totally didn't develop the tech, honest guv!

Honestly, not necessarily true on that part. I mean, do you REALLY want to get into an Arena match where everyone starts off cloaked and never de-cloaks except to try and lure their enemy out of it first?

Besides, what's really missing from gameplay by not having cloak on more Fed ships? What are you missing without more cloaks? What aspect of the game feels empty and cold by not having further cloaking technology?



Anyways, I won't bother trying to argue the whole 'treaty' thing anymore. With all this Romulan talk I highly doubt this 'cloaking' issue is going to get dropped ever again at this point. It's been done to death, re-born, done to death again, and then killed in Sto'vo'kor somehow. Tired of trying at this point.

well... just beacuse the romulans have cloacking devices, and some romulans will be allies with the federation Doesn't mens their will strip their ships and put their devices on fed ships.

as far i know if you want to be on the fed side an use a romulan cloaking device you should be flying a romulan ship...


of course is possible the devs make those devices equippable on any/most ship, but also possible the won't do.


also... why is everybody so obssesed with cloaking devices?... kinda reminds me my 7 yo cousin an that stupid TMNT cake *shivers*

What are yuo talking about? The Romulans already gave Sisko a cloaking device decades ago. A few Romulan allies, some industrial replicators, some schematics, and viola, Romulan cloaking devices mass manufactured for the federation allies! No need to "strip" anything out of ships. Just lend a helping hand to those helping fix up New Romulus.

Or one of the fed ships that already have cloaking. This just opens the door wider. Amirite?

I'm pretty sure the federation already has cloaking technology, so we don't need the romulans to give it to us, unless it's the one that gives us shields as well as lets us fire while cloaked.... then maybe. Aside from that we already had the intangible cloak, so i'm sure all we would need was for D'Tan to not freak out when the escorts started disappearing to go hunt tholians.

Fed want Cloak...Roll a Romulan aid the Federation problem solved. :P
