Re: A Singular Destiny review thread (possible spoilers)

^Just because they have a cloak doesn't mean they have to use it very often. If they use it only in emergencies or situations that call for it, there shouldn't be a problem. SF wouldn't use it routinely, only as a defensive tool when in a hostile area/situation. All they need to do is make sure any non-essential systems are on standby. For example...When the cloak is engaged, things like holodecks and high powered labs would be shut down to minimum so they can get the most out of the cloak.

We know it's against Starfleet policy as they are explorers by trade and not spies. But this is a different Quadrant than it was in 2311 (I can't believe I wrote that ), and any defensive tool should not be discounted because of power constraints...
