In Enterprise? I don't recall that...which episode do they have cloaking devices?

Re: TOS: No Time Like the Past Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Maybe some Head of House discovered that his family symbol in centuries past was a one-winged bird? And so he decided that his shipyards were going to make him a one-winged destroyer in honour of his ancestors, and after a few rounds of executions and temper tantrums the workers gave in and built him one?

^I put it down to a Klingon budget crisis. Why build one D-7 battlecruiser when you can build almost two of those lopsided beauties?

Although not explicitly stated, in "Unexpected", the Klingons acquire technology from the Xyrilians who had cloaking ability.

Alternately, Children of Kings has them testing cloaks in Pike's time.

Is there any chance you can include the review and the link or you know, a few more words on the matter?

I believe it's the wrong outfit for the time she came from, and not the one described in the novel. ("Uniform" isn't really the word, since it was unique to her.)

Exactly that, Christopher - if it hadn't been specifically mentioned a couple of times, I wouldn't have noticed

Greg, did you have a specific influence when you chose 6422.5 as the stardate of the main story?

Honestly, I think I spent more time trying to figure out where exactly to place Seven's story in the Voyager chronology. For Kirk, I think I just chose sometime after the original TV series, during the tail end of the original five-year mission.

I never did much care for starships that aren't symmetrical.

Then how do you feel about the Breen warship from DS9? Or Star Trek Online's array of other Breen starships?

The Breen warship came to mind upon reading that as well.
Imho, STO's Plesh Brek-class is unbecoming. However, the smooth Breen cruiser from Armada is cool.
