If they really really really really really need a Battle Cloak THAT bad, just make one of the ships that ALREADY has a standard cloak have it (and this is just me playing devil's advocate here; really I just prefer BC's stay with the Klinks, and I have toons on BOTH sides I play with, so I'm not biased either way). Don't invent for them a paper-hulled gun-laden deathtrap that doesn't fit with the Fed policy of "everybody makes it home" in the first place.
going by this line of thinking.. if all current fed cloaking ships get BC, then they need to lose as much as the BOP has lost due to it's BC.. 1 weapon slot, 1 tac console slot, 1 boff slot, hull, shields, total power, and whatever else i didn't think of.
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"

Oh, and they better get the same broken.."Oops srry that was mom on the line and we just decloaked" cloak that everyone else has.



Yeah, that's right.

who cares .
i got the cloaking defiant and i never use it .
and the only reason the feds didn't use cloaks was the treaty of algeron with the romuleans
when the hobus star blew romulus to kingdom come the treaty should have been rendered null and void. there is no reason for feds to not use such a huge tactical advantage on their ships and if you go into the books replicator plans for cloaks and transphasic cloaks were in all starfleet ship computers but were only acessiable with admiral command authority in times of war.

The Defiant would have to be hit severely by the nerf bat in order to give it a Battle Cloak.

Scoff at less hull if you like, but try eating a salvo of torpedoes soon after you've slipped back into cloak. Losing a Tac console and also a Boff slot is also part of the experience.

I prefer my B'rel Retrofit over everything else in the game, of course, but I run a Science Captain.

Absolutely. Where's the justice if they too don't get their own days ruined by a cloaking device that has a will of its own... apparently a very malicious will that wants to see you die every waking moment of its non-life?

I wouldn't have it any other way. 'Course I fly a Guramba these days ('cuz I'll be darned if I don't use the single most expensive C-Store ship I've yet purchased to the fullest).

A lot of this seems to be 'this is something unique that the Klingons have and should remain only ours.' If thats the case, then what does the Federation get that the Klingons will never have?

Gorn sci ships. Yes they're c-store, but I doubt any would-be Fed raider wouldn't be.
