So what the people in game are referring to is what Nero did BEFORE being sucked into the black hole. What he did afterward, in the alternate timeline, they have no idea about.
Yeah but what about that whole Robert Orci Alex Kurtzman Tim Jones we didn't really get J.J.'s approval for the countdown story line? Since JJ is steering the Trek boat now is that still Canon?

JJ controls the USS alternate timeline. we live in the prime timeline so his universe doesn't effect ours unless if makes a movie that comes back in to our timeline.

Edit But it did effect us as the left our timeline. ( super nova and spock to name a few. )

Canon? No, but neither is STO. The Devs have stated that they view the shows/movies as "hard canon", but the books as "soft canon" and pick and choose which book storylines they want to follow. "Countdown" was an obvious choice because it bridges the gap between Nemesis and STO's time period. So while Countdown isnt official canon, it IS canon in STO's storyline.

The only reason Starfleet didn't have the cloak was due to a treaty with the Romulans. Given that the Romulans are now an endangered species, why not look into cloaking technology?

Really, the argument about cloaking is just going around in circles over and over again. The Galaxy-X is going to be in the game and it's going to have a non-battle cloak, that's an established fact and arguing about it won't change anything. However, just because one limited-edition ship has a non-battle cloak doesn't mean you're going to be seeing cloaking Excelsiors or NX-class or Olympics in STO. It might just mean that there will be story arcs involving keeping the Federation's experiments a secret or trying to stop them on the Klingon side.

-If- we see another Federation ship with a cloaking device it will most likely be the T5 Defiant or some variant of that. That's only a possibility, however, at the moment the only ship we know will have a cloaking device will be the Galaxy-X and not only will that be a non-battle cloak but also only a very small percentage of the population will have it and some of them won't even PvP. I certainly know I won't.

2395 brings a strange turn of events among the Klingons. Ja’rod, son of Torg (and Lursa) survives an ambush by strange tripedal aliens while on shore leave from his berth on the IKS Kang. He manages to capture one of his attackers, who turns out to be Undine (also known as Species 8472); the information gathered from this attack will determine the course of events within the Alpha Quadrant for the next several decades.

Starfleet, caught out by the accidental destruction of the USS Kelso, publically admits to experimenting with cloaking technology. This, as expected, creates considerable tension between the Federation and both the Romulans and Klingons.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So are we going to be seeing more vessels in starfleet with cloaks.muahhah..... And also how do you all feel about this and what could it mean for pvp?
just means more cat and mouse in pvp, hopefully more people will play pvp aswell, the klingon are used to playing cloaked v.s. cloaked, while the fed, this will be something new to them

Gotta love it how the OP either omitted the whole entry for 2395, or just never read it. :p

Quote:
After careful consideration, Captain Barax Wenn of the April reveals the cause of the Kelso's destruction to the Romulan ships assisting in the search for the vessel. Praetor Taris lodges an immediate complaint with the Federation Council, and, as a "gesture of good faith," informs the Klingon Empire of the details of the Kelso's destruction as well.

Starfleet Security admits that the U.S.S. Kelso was testing a Federation cloaking device. The Romulans eject all Federation diplomats and ships from their space in protest, and Chancellor J'mpok recalls the Klingon ambassador to the Federation back to Qo'noS for "strategic discussions."

Tensions between the three powers are at their highest point since the destruction of the Romulan homeworld in 2387. After a full inquiry, six members of Starfleet Security are court-martialed.

It takes three months for Federation President Aennik Okeg to convince the Romulans and the Klingons to send representatives to a summit to discuss the situation. When the meeting finally begins, Okeg makes the Federation's position clear. He apologizes for the experiments into cloaking technology, and says that he has signed an executive order banning all research into or creation of Federation cloaking technology.
So there you have it, no cloaks for feddies. :p
