I was looking forward to some PVP where you could have 1 on 1 battles.
As far as Fed v Fed is concerned, they could be classes as training activities. I would love to be able to battle someone to see who has the most powerful ship, best skills etc. It would also be a good opportunity to try out different tactics.
Fed v Klingon is easy to explain with random meetings through their travels.
This would be a fantastic addition which would compliment the existing larger scale PVP.
In ground PVP, sometimes when teams are uneven, we offer to 1 vs 1 duel the outnumbered side. Say there are 2 Feds vs 5 Klingons. We then agree that whoever bumps into an enemy first gets to engage in a 1 vs 1 duel with them. This helps keep the match more fair and reduces chances of the outnumbered team, Feds in this example, from leaving the match entirely and delaying all of us from getting points.
I think it should be optional for 1v1 duels. Just a little tickbox to enable or disable cloak. If both sides agree either way then they can go ahead with the duel.
I know that if I was to duel with my brother for example he wouldn't mind if I used cloak and vice versa. And if you are dueling for RP purposes it seems unfair to have blanket ban on cloak, especially if you want to use it. In fact you could say you don't even need a ban on cloak in 1v1. If you're fighting a friend then you can agree beforehand. If you fight a stranger and they grief you somehow with the cloak then report them, ignore them and don't play them again.
