There has always been contention over the effectiveness of the Federation's sensor-dampening ewar tactics against the State's ECM. Some military scientists feel that, in adding ECM to the hybrid arsenal, the Federation would be admitting to a weakness and confirming the State's superiority; others argue that turning the enemy's tactics against them is an essential facet of wartime, and that rejecting the opportunity is effectively signing off on the Federation's defeat. The debate rages in both the staterooms and the laboratories even as research and development continues.
