The Romulans developed it, and the Klingons stole, it but are there any others who possess it either through theft or development?

    The Dominion’s genetically-engineered soldier race, the Jem’Hadar, had individual cloaking tech, Predator-style. GET TO DAH CHOPPAH Commented Feb 3, 2016 at 19:49

    @PaulD.Waite I don't think it is tech, because the Jem'Hadar child that is found and raised by Odo is able to cloak without having access to any of the Dominion tech. Commented Feb 3, 2016 at 20:08

    Paul, yes when it was how small a cloak can be. Personal cloaking devices.

    It sounds like nearly everyone has cloaking technology. A better question might be who uses cloaking tech regularly.

    The Klingons stole cloaking technology? I'm pretty sure they traded for the technology with the Romulans. Klingons had well-designed ships but no cloaks. Romulans had poorly designed ships that could cloak. They traded information and everybody won. This is why a lot of Klingon and Romulan ships have many similarities with avian-like designs, and even in naming.

In addition to the cultures mentioned, Memory Alpha mentions several others:

  • The Federation (seen on the USS Defiant, Self-replicating mines and the Federation Holoship in Insurrection)
  • The Terran Empire (seen on the ISS Enterprise)
  • The Cardassian Obsidian Order (seen on the Koranak)
  • The Kraylor (seen on the Nightingale)
  • The Klingon-Cardassian Alliance (seen on the Regent's flagship
  • The Remans (seen on the Scimitar)
  • The Voth (seen on the Voth City Ship and the Voth research vessel)
  • The Krenim Imperium (seen on the Krenim weapon ship)
  • The Aldeans (seen on Aldea)
  • The Sphere Builders (seen on the Delphic Expanse spheres)
  • The Minosians (seen on Echo Papa 607)
  • The Srivani (seen on Srivani vessels)
  • The Hierarchy (seen on their ships)
  • The Xyrillians (seen on their starships)

Bear in mind that this list does include some references to societies from other realities.

  • Don't forget the Ramurans. I added an edit suggestion.

  • Several civilizations that are able to produce cloaking technology would occasionally trade, sell, or lose (to theft) a cloaking device or three. I'm not sure all of the civilizations here are able to produce their own cloaks, as several of them only exhibit one or two examples that could have been obtained elsewhere.

The Aldeans are a race of people who cloak their entire planet in When The Bough Breaks.

Suliban also have cloaking technology.

Quark managed to acquire a damaged cloaking device on the black market. He ultimately gave it to some Cardassians in Profit and Loss.

In Blaze of Glory, the Klingon empire supplied cloaking devices to the Maquis for use against Cardassia.
