Are cloaking devices possible?

Two types of nanotechnology, metalenses and metamaterials, could soon make Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak a reality. By bending light around an object, the science of transformation optics could enable the first working, 3D cloaking device.

How did Romulans get cloaking technology?

According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Journal, the Romulan cloaking device was acquired by the Klingons as an exchange for several D7-class battle cruisers given to the Romulans during the Romulan-Klingon Alliance.

What is a cloaking device made of?

For the cloaking device, researchers made mosaic-like constructions out of fiberglass sheets stamped with loops of wire, somewhat similar to a circuit board. The arrangement of the copper wires determines the way it interacts with electromagnetic fields.

Why can’t the Federation use cloaking?

The Federation must have known that not developing its own cloak would have given them a tremendous disadvantage in comparison to Klingon and Romulan technology of the time.

Do Romulan ships use dilithium?

According to Memory Alpha, Romulans do not use dilithium for their propulsion but artificial quantum singularities. They therefore should not have been affected by The Burn, would’ve retained their full fleet and full warp capabilities and they could’ve easily taken over some sectors.
