I play both sides but it eludes me why the feds Defiant Class vessels can't cloak.


The Federation vessels can't cloak, because lore-wise.. the Feds don't use Cloaks (well, as a general rule, there are some rare exceptions, and someone who can recall all the episode names and contents will post in a minute or two and tell you those exceptions).

It's part of a treaty, and, in general, I think the Federation views attacking from stealth as 'dishonorable' or, at the very least, counter to Starfleet's official mission of exploration and science (the whole military thing is a secondary job, not the main function).
