If they could break the cloak in ENT, why couldn't they do it in later series?--Matthew 22:18, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Cloaking devices improved. We saw that even during Enterprise. In the episode "Minefield" Enterprise was able to use its beacons to detect the cloaked mines, but the Romulan Bird-of-Prey had a more advanced cloaking device, and the beacons failed to detect it. Thats partly how all of this stealth technology works, it is a race between the stealth tech and the tech used to detect it. --OuroborosCobra 00:31, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Not to mention that by the later series, for whatever reason, nobody in Starfleet (at least those performing starship duties) had any knowledge of cloaking technology, despite the encounters with such technology a century earlier. --From Andoria with Love 05:13, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
