The cloaking device should pull power from shields and that power should return in the same manner it would if you just dropped out of full impulse. It should not affect weapons, engines, or AUX as the power drain is specifically related to shields and cloak.

As for firing when cloaked plenty of Star Trek lore has this in existence but that would be out of control in a MMO.

I play Klingon and while I think cloak is a prefectly valid technology in it's current form a slight alteration in how shield power is handled would make logical sense.

You drain all power from shields to cloak and when you drop the cloak the power returns to shields at some rate (affected by skills that already exist in the game) to whatever you have set for your current power levels.
