Take a look at the lower right. I'll wait.
And yes, I can hear the scream of outrage from here. That's right: Fed Battle Cloaks.
It's on their fighters- only a matter of time before every ship in their fleet has it, completely wrecking any sense of unique play the KDF faction has.
With the Romulans getting their own unique play options via singularity cores, we KDF are officially bent over a rail here.
Welcome to the end of STO.
I kid, but I thought I'd pre-empt the inevitable 'omg trek is teh overz' thread since they'll start up as more people hit T5 science and the old 'the feds are stealing our uniquenessez!' guys come out of hiding.
I agree with the general sentiment I see in here that battle cloaking fed pets are a slippery slope that will lead to more begging from feds and eventually Fed ships with battle cloak. Every single time I come on to these forums it seems the devs are taking another shot at Klingon uniqueness by eroding any sort of distinctive feature the Klings have, whether it's the klingon STF space and ground sets, carriers, etc.
The history of Cryptic-STo player relations in a nutshell:
Cryptic threw me under a bus, slapped me in the face, and hates my ships/faction. That's a strawman argument! That's a no true scotsman fallacy! That been said ad infinitum, ad nauseum. X ship is OP, nerf plz. Carriers are OP! Look it up in the dictionary! Say no, say yes to Arc. Synergy?
