...for the Dominion conflict? We know the Romulans government loaned the Starfleet a cloaking device to be used on the Defiant. There was even a Romulan officer stationed on board to supervise it's use. Although she died in the first mission in search of the Dominon (DS9 "The Search"), Sisko was still able to use the cloak. Now we know Starfleet is more than capable of constructing and installing their own cloaking devices on to their own ships (TNG "Pegasus"). My question is, with the lax supervision by the Romulans of the cloaking device they loaned Starfleet for the Defiant. Would it not also be plausible for the Fed/Starfleet to renegotiation the terms of the treaty that bans the Feds using cloaking devices? This would be the Fed/Starfleet asking to amend the rules for the duration of the Dominon Conflict. Recall also that after the Romulans signed a non-aggression pact with the Dominion; there was never any calls for Starfleet to relinquish the cloak that had been installed on the Defiant.
