    The only problem with this episode is - if a cloaking device cloaks itself, how the **** do you install or repair it? It's portrayed as a very delicate piece of technology that is a mystery to Federation scientists...and INVISIBLE.

    I couldn't even imagine putting an invisible 8-track into an invisible 8-track Player, much less installing an incredibly complex device that is literally 'shrouded' in secrecy.

    I know, I know....'plot device'. But in a thread with this title, it's worth noting.

    You don't have to cloak it. It may not even be a standard function. Rom may have artfully fiddled with it.
