With the Galaxy-X entering the Federation... Why exactly don't, at least, Escorts also get the technology?

This is so absurd... I'm not trying to be obtuse or troll. However this is ridiculous. We clearly HAVE the technology and have BROKEN the treaty flying the Galaxy-X...

So please enlighten me why we have the technology, broke the treaty, and aren't equipping all our ships with this technology?

The official answer is that we shouldn't try to rationalise it but see it as a video game unlock just for fun.

Because they don't need them, and any good captain will tell you that exact same thing.

I agree with your assertion. But the Galaxy-X is from an alternate time-line where the Klingons had defeated the Romulan Star Empire and, I'm guessing here, that Starfleet felt that the Treaty of Algernon was null and void then. In our time-line, the Romulan Star Empire is still around though they are fragmented after the super nova destroyed their home world. IMHO, the Galaxy-X shouldn't be included in the game since we are back in the "normal" time-line, based off of TNG, once the anomoly was closed and Q was satisfied. Granted we are still in an alternate time-line based off ST9 but since the Romlans are still around, the Treaty of Algernon is still valid. Just my opinion. Do with it what you will.

The Galaxy-X is a c-store gimmick.
Please, in the name of all thats holy, lets not have a cloaking Defiant as a C-store idea.
I don't think the forums could handle the flames.

I said that in our time-line, the Romulans are still around so the Galaxy-X shouldn't be added. If I didn't make myself clear, I apologize.

Let us see how things roll. I agree with you that if the new T5 ships get the cloak treatment, then so must the escorts.
