Hikaru Sulu, Corbomite Maneuver and Janice Rand on a ship with Claoking Device.

If your ship is cloaked and want's to fire how do you prevent being target locked next turn?

Answer, you can't.

Any Captain with a skill higher than Sulu's can target lock his ship next turn after Sulu has taken his action. Even if they only have lower skill captains they can target lock knowing that Sulu can't Cloak and get rid of the target lock.

However, you can arrange to get round this as follows:

Cloak the ship on the first turn and use your action on the second turn to re-enable the cloak ready to use again.

On turn three maneuver to make the attack you want to carry out and then do so.

Next turn, after you have cloaked if you have been target locked already or there is the possibility that a higher skill captain will target lock you, you can use Corbomite Maneuver (discarding Rand to make it a free action)to prevent your enemy from taking advantage of their lock-on that turn.

Next turn you can use Sulu's action to remove the target lock and since this is no longer the turn on which you cloaked they can't lock-on to you.

or you just spend the points for an Advanced Weapon System and use it to fire without decloaking and re-enable it each turn with your action to fire every turn without ever dropping cloak to allow someone to lock on you.

If you're Klingon, correct.

If you're Federation, you can't use AWS in a Pure Faction build.

Just add one of those 1 point crew for Sulu to disable.

I was thinking:

USS Defiant
Captain Sulu
Corbomite Maneuver
Janice Rand
Kyle
Quantum Torpedoes
Secondary Torpedo Launcher
Cloaking Device

Total 49 points

As part of a 2 ship build using both Admiral's orders.

Wait, can you use both Admiral's Orders if you meet both requirements?

Edit: Turns out I can read, just not remember things. Wow, those things are a bit more broken than I originally remembered.
