A cloaking device bent light and sensor beams around a ship, rendering it invisible to detection. The energy requirements to operate a cloaking device were prohibitive, typically leaving a ship equipped with such a device unable to use weapons or raise shields while the cloak was active.[1] Cloaking devices required the rare substance chimerium to operate.[2]
