Re: The Pegasus/Treaty of Algeron

I always figured the power drain/consumption that a cloaking device would take up on a ships' systems made Starfleet realize it wasn't worth it, so they were always like "to heck with it" and didn't pursue the matter, and when drawing up treaties with the Romulans, were like "Yeah, whatever".

It's a better explanation than Gene Roddenberry's "our guys don't go sneaking around", if you ask me.
