Speaking of Cloaks, why did the Defiant have a Romulan cloaking device, rather than Klingon?
The Treaty of Algeron, which established among other things the reinforcement and redefinition of the Romulan Neutral Zone, also had provisions that prevented the Federation from pursuing cloaking technology themselves.

If Starfleet now wanted to use a cloak, they'd have to consult and deal with the Romulans, even if they wanted to use someone else's cloaking device, so it's probably just easier to use a Romulan one since conditions would obviously be applied either way.
