That treaty only says the federation cant DEVELOPE cloaking tech it says nothing about using it...perhaps the ship could be built in co-operation with the RSE on the condition that a cloak is loaned to the federation. I for one am very interested in the through cloak firing abilities of the Scimitar. perhaps we could incorperate something similar hear.... power requirements though...eh i shudder to think.
If so the enterprise would be able to detect the Scimitar every time they fire if that is indeed true then they might as well be decloaked also the fact of the matter is that how the cloak works is irrelevant to this conversation...simply that it works is all we need to know for now
One of my friends said this about selective cloaks one while testing a mod for ST: Bridge Commander.
The selective cloak works by cloaking the weapon as it fires keeping the charge inside the cloaking field. The ship could wait for the charge to move a certain distance and it releases the cloak. The ship would by this point have moved on from its firing position so it would be away from the spot where the enemy ship would be looking.
so it would be still cloaked.
or it uses similar power requirerments to the klingon bird of prey in the last NCC-1701 film coz' it would have to with the radiation source it uses/used.
The Bird of Prey in ST:6 had in cloak firing, despite the status of the film itself. However, it seems to make things too easy: Go into cloak Fire torpedoes (note they couldn't do phasers though) Enemy dies On with simming...well, not so much.
Also, if anyone found out about this they would likely execute the entire crew and pretend they never found the ship, which would also make simming hard.
Basically, it seems a good idea for a baddie ship to have because of the challenge it represents but risks removing any sort of challenge for the crew. Possibly anyone interested in designing such a ship should do so for the Romulans so that their ship can be the one to find it a blow it up?
