SPACE PSYCHICS

In many space opera stories, there have been examples of psychics with extraordinary powers. Spock from Star Trek had psychic abilities when he performed the Vulcan Mind Meld. The Jedi and Sith have prominently displayed psychic powers through the Force in Star Wars. River Tam was implied to have psychic powers in Firefly and Serenity. Sarah Kerrigan was one of the strongest psychics in the Starcraft franchise. The list goes on and on. I am thinking of carrying on this tradition by including an organization of psychics in my space opera story. These psychics will be the most prominent military and law enforcement organization in known space. Real life militaries often perform experiments to try and create an army of psychic super-soldiers. A prime example is the Stargate Project from 1991, which was conducted by the United States Army. One could argue that my organization is a manifestation of what that psychic army would look like if it ever bore fruit.
