It would be entirely compatible with canon if all ships could take a cloak console.
Well, yes and no. Yes, the Romulans can install cloaks on most ships. But, no, it's not that easy. I remember in several episodes they mentioned that the cloak has to be precisely calibrated to match the energy signature of the ship.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
