# 1 Any ship can have cloak now

MES 1 + green romulan boff (basic subterfuge) gives you more stealth rating than the standard cloak.
I think there is something wrong

Then no need to add cloaking devices to Fed ships.

After some preliminary testing, it looks like the OP is only correct if you also have a +Stealth deflector equipped (Romulan or Reman, e.g.). Even with 99 in Starship Stealth and 100 Aux, the values on MES 1 don't quite match up with a standard Cloaking Device.

So, it at least requires a Boff Slot + Deflector + Bridge Officer to achieve the same thing that a ship with Cloak gets for "free". Also bear in mind that a ship with Cloak can make their Stealth ratings higher using similar means (equipment, skills and aux).

So yes, for now it's possible. But it's not quite as easy as it sounds... you still have to use a particular load-out to make use of it.

So... Before I dump the required dilithium and romulan marks into getting the MK XII reman deflector, I have to ask, working as intended but monitored, or "nerf" inbound?
