Yeah I'd like to say about the cooldown for the battle cloak, bad idea, horrible idea, and just out right STUPID idea 30s like someone else said would have been fine, but in 40s the battle may very well be over making it of no use especially if you use it to get in the middle of your enemies
Edit: OK just tried it and at the 10s mark I had defeated ALL my opponents yeah, of no use

Reason: just tried the battle cloak
doubled the romulan battle cloak recharge to 40sec? ouch lol
Yeah, not really sure about the thought process around this, seems to me that battle cloak was supposed to make up for big slow ships. Also, this is going to suck when talking to your boff next to you on the bridge pulls you out of cloak.
IF the cooldown change on the cloaking was done simply to fix the 5.5 cooldown time, I'd say they went in the wrong direction and should instead have looked at "diminishing returns" on stacking multiple cloak cooldown BOffs.
What I suspect it was for was to get a bit more variety in the ranges of Battle Cloak durations. So that those who said "Battle Cloak? Pfft, whatever" doesn't get full use of the cloak, while someone who wants to specialize in it gets full benefit.
40 sec for a non-specialist feels a little extreme, personally I'd go a bit shorter on the worst end (30 sec, maybe?) and then implement diminishing returns so that stacking multiple stealth traits adds just a little less each time.
As it was before, when people specialized to the max, it was awe inspiring; when people didn't bother to specialize at all, it was pretty darn okay.
