# 1 Cloaked Mines:
11-19-2010, 07:54 AM
Where are my cloaked mines? They'd deploy, then cloak right away. You could lure people into them.
Heck, I want self replicating cloaked mines. If any of the mines miss and some are destroyed they'll, at a medium pace, spawn more of them.


P.S. mines suck so buff them too.

And there are canon references to those being cross-faction...

Yes, the Klingons used them.

No, the Klingons used them too. Chronologically, they used them before the Feds.

Now THIS idea I like... you could have an officer ability to cloak them, so you don't have to create a whole new series of weapons. Just like a dispersal pattern, it works for one cluster of mines...

With the exception of Tricobalts of course... that would get a bit overpowered. LOL

Sorry, but self replicating mines where a really bad idea from DS9. Cool in theory, but practice ...

Indeed, the Klingon cloaked mines were just plain cloaked mines, no self-replication.

But then of course there is the concern of "balance".
Before anything like this is implemented, cloak countermeasures need to be improved significantly.

Oh, you could get rid of their "chase" ability. You'd make it so you'd have to actually run into them.
