Klingons of that time did not have their warrior ridges. As a result they were honorless and weak. This has been alluded to in various DS9 and VOY episodes as well as written of in several Trek novels.
Good gracious me. They are alive and well right now and within these forums!
Just wait a few minutes and you'll see another one, wait there he goes, did you see him?
It is true. A Galaxy refit launched a case of Chateau Picard at me in pvp, and my cloak went offline. Further, the helmsman reported a pleasant buzz and dry flavor.
However, you won't catch me whining about it. Quite frankly, I have uses for the new Bird of Prey that has nothing to do with its new cloak. I enjoy its speed and turning radius, not to mention its attractive retro look. If they were to remove the new cloak altogether and replace it with the standard issue variety while restoring the missing hull, I'd probably still fly it.
