Re: Everytime I watch TWOK/TSFS...
one thing that irks me about STIII, why is it that the enterprise can "detect" a cloaked bird of prey on a short range scan but cant see that grissom is no where to be found?
I don't think they detected it on scan while it was cloaked, Chekov merely caught a glimpse of it before it cloaked.
They identified it visually due to the distortion the cloak gave off.
