Sign me up!
There's less chance of that happening than the Fleet Exeter in your signature there. I mean, there's been some OLD ships retrofitted to higher tier already, but I don't think they'll ever do every single last ship.
Besides, aside from getting CBS to ok it, the real question is: Would it sell? I mean that, would there truly be enough people willing to buy the tier 5 Oberth, with it's console only being usable on the Oberth? It'd 'fill' out the roster in a way, by having a cruiser, a sci-ship, and an escort all with cloak on the Fed-side.
That said, I have no interest in this. Even if others do, don't expect a 'phase cloak' to be 'all that' or anything. Because it'll be usable only on the Oberth. At tier 5 only the ship the console came on can use it, so that won't be changing for this. It won't be the 'exception'.
Honestly this thread has been going on for way too long. Romulans are coming, they will probably have cloaked ships, and you'll in-directly have Fed ships with cloak, so there.
A mime is a terrible thing to waste
