Klingons are all about Honor. Love em/hate em...They are honorable foes....and Battle Cloak is not an honorable tactic.

A Klingon will use cloak to ambush, but never to run away.
Tell that to the pansies in PvP who use it to run away.

First off, Klingons cloaked in the middle of battle all the time on the show(s). Martok even said once that there is nothing dishonorable about knowing when to quit. Also, cloaking to get a tactical and strategic advantage would not be dishonorable... if you uncloak again behind your opponent and blow him to smithereens... all the better! I don't know how many times in PvP I cloaked while taking fire, so that whomever was firing at me would switch to the cruiser instead of me, only to re-appear behind them and help the cruiser blast em. They rarely re-target me, which means I not only divided the damage being dealt by the opponent but they usually die pretty fast. That is an honorable tactical strategy.

If you can't handle it then I suggest you hide behind your tachyon detection grid guarding Sirius sector and place your head firmly between your legs, you miserable paTak!

What I do find funny/annoying is that NPC ships that cloak still have shields while cloaked.

I know there are instances of Klingons cloaking during a battle....and there's General Chang....That piece of work....But he was messed up in the head anyway.....

There are situations where I am sure Cloaking and turning tail are not dishonorable.....but in general....It's just not very Klingon.....

Klingons do, but I think Romulans for some reason don't
