You think our new Romulan friends - being pretty weak - in need of the Fed's help would offer up some of their cloaking tech?

Maybe Cryptic should add a "Romulan Cloaking Console" to tier 5 in the rep system.

I would certainly put out the 500 marks and 25k dilthium for that item. Heck even 50k dilthium! Maybe even more!

Plus, for KDF players it would give all those people with non-klingon ships like the Guramba and Kar'fi the chance to have a cloaking device as well.

Cryptic would certainly get a lot more mileage out of the Romulan content with maybe 200,000+ alts that are not now running the rep system - suddenly start getting used.

If you want a cloak as fed, get a defiant refit or a gal-x. Or play KDF.
If the rom repu hands out a cloaking console, what is the net demand? Romulan ships?
And after that? The potential Romulan faction is so fleeced out that there is no point anymore in creating it.

Point 1)I play KDF - 3 Main toons

Point 2)I have a Defiant

Point 3)Not holding my breathe for any Romualn faction - it would be a year away at least.

Now as far as story goes - exchanging tech for help is usually done - fed's are putting in a lot of help to the Romulans and facing a lot of Romulan Enemys - giving the Fed's a cloak just like they did with the defiant would be a no-brainer.

There is enough story laid out with the new Romulan Gov't to easily put this in.

Botton line for Cryptic is 100k players running the rep system for this console X how may alts?

Only if they add the Ablative Generator console to Tier 5 Omega Force rep, for all ships.

That makes sense to - as Ablative armor would natually be fitted on all ships at the shipyard. Heck Voy added it while out in space!

I thing cryptic taking the time to add the Cloaking and Ablative animation to all Fed ships would get almost all players and all Alts running the Rep system to the end

= huge amount of people replaying existing content for just that Dev animation time!

That's a heck of a lot of player hours extra for that Dev time.

Why do people keep asking to take away the things that make my ship unique?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

What the Intrepid? Have her too, but as a sci ship she was made obsolete by the Vesta.

I play the KDF and would play Romulan if it ever came out. The KDF does not really have a valid case on the Cloak anymore because almost everyone is asking for the Romulan and obviously they will have Cloaks on their ships - or is the KDF going to say they can't have cloaks so the KDF remains unique? So then we have 2 ingame factions with a cloak and 1 without? that's kind of silly.

And in the case of a Tier 5 Romulan Cloaking console - the KDF will still have an advantage because the cloak will take up a Fed console slot - while the KDF keeps the Cloak innate - and don't have to waste a slot.

No, the Galaxy-X. Right now there are two ships that have stolen my phaser lance, and everyone keeps asking for my cloak.

Feds are never going to get widespread cloaks. I don't give a rats ass how many cloaking factions are added to the game. You need to just accept that and move on.

Even from a storyline perspective, it's not like the Feds aren't capable of developing a cloaking device. They wouldn't need the Romulans to share tech. And the Romulans wouldn't share tech anyway when they are courting both the Klingons and the Federation (who are at war) for help
