Romulan Cloak is a ship ability available only to Romulan Republic players and is usually found on small craft that are not able to accommodate the more powerful Romulan Battle Cloak.

It allows the player to cloak when out of combat, increasing stealth but lowering the shields while active. This stealth bonus is reduced and the ship will be easier to detect if the Singularity Charge is high. When engaging in combat, or interacting with an object or contact, the cloak will drop. When activated, the shields will drop for a few seconds before the cloak fully engages. Immediately after decloaking it grants a short duration damage bonus. The strength of the cloak is determined by the ship's Auxiliary Power setting.
