psychoprojective telepathy Episode: DS9 429 - Second Sight
Literally, the ability to create solid forms from one's mind. Halanans such as Nidell Seyetik have this gift, though they lose control of it during bouts of extreme emotional stress. The energy given off from the Occipital Lobe to sustain the image often leads to unconsciousness and even death if sustained for more than an hour or two. More than one distinct projection may be created.

Betazoid telepathy: active or passive?
We have this comment in the article now: "Betazoids, for example, have active telepathic abilities with members of their species as mentioned above, but only passive telepathic abilities with members of other species." But on further thought, it occurs to me that there were times when, for example, Lawaxanna Troi talked telepathically with both Deanna and Picard, neither of which are telepathic. For that to occur, Betazoid telepathy must be active across other species. Thoughts? --Wolf /talk page 22:40, 1 January 2009 (EST)
- How is active/passive defined? I thought active would mean Betazoids are generally communicating telepathicly with each other all the time, but passive means they have to conciously make an effort to use it on other species? Hutch 18:35, 2 January 2009 (EST)
- Take a look at the article - it explains the active/passive term. --Wolf /talk page 00:10, 5 January 2009 (EST)
- I think there's a very thin line between passive and active and using and abusing powers. Telepathy is passive as long as used for conversation between two wiling partners but the moment it went into the sphere of influencing anyone by either "telling" what to do or putting/forcing decisions upon it's active. Telepathy is consisted of two recognized skills inside the power - telesend and telereceive. Question I have is do we recognize psionic powers and difference between them and skills? - Boby
