Re: Cloaking question

I would think for long-distance, formation travel, they'd be in autopilot, with stuff like speed, relative position in the fleet, and following distance already decided. That said, however, unless there is some signal nobody's detected yet, I would think it would be impractical for a fleet to travel that way once there's any reason to have an erratic course.

For instance, if you suspected you were being pursued by multiple Klingon/Romulan ships, I think it might make sense to fly into an asteroid field so they can't predict each other's maneuvers...
