I heartily agree on the addition of the other races' ships.
However, even without cloak coming into consideration, knowing the direction to the nearest enemy energy signature skill would be good in deathmatches and other forms of PvP. It is in for anonalies and objectives for PvE anyway for free. The same reasoning to include it for PvP applies here.
Cloaking before combat and to get the first strike would not be changed by a direction pointer skill. Even evading would not be greatly affected. Klingon ships can still outrun their federation counterparts in nearly every case. At higher tiers cloaking isn't anywhere near as effective as in tier 1 and 2. More abilities are available to mess with or better reveal cloaked ships.
