When you have the best cloaking technology in the galaxy why do you need to be nimble?

Klingon's have to be nimble because they're all about attacking head-on.
Federation is the jack-of-all-trades sort, so they have to be somewhat dexterous.
Romulan's don't need to be nimble because they could appear anywhere. Even worse: they could have reinforcements you only know about right before taking all their opening salvo's at once.

Game mechanics don't exactly match up with this unfortunately. I'd love to see some 'Oh crap, that's no D'Deridex, that's three D'Deridex' moments in STO.
