I have just watched "The Way of the Warrior" (first episode of 4th season of Deep Space Nine) and I found one of orders, Sisko gave to Worf, at least weird.
On board "The Defiant", Sisko orders Worf:
Mister Worf, keep an eye out for Klingon ships cloaked or otherwise.
How could Worf achieve this? How can one detect a cloaked ship? If that would be possible, what use or value would there be out of using cloaking devices at all?
I recall some very, very initial attempts to detect a cloaked ship in one of early episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation. But, that was really inital, without good scientific base and it was actually based on a lot o luck. Yet, I'm getting the feeling, that in this episode Sisko orders Worf doing this, like it was something as natural as using transporter device or replicator.
Can anyone explain this to me? Is there anything, that I'm missing? Because, for me, this is a clear mistake in a script.
