Introduction

Psionics are a relatively new phenomenon theorized to be linked to long-term exposure to deep, uninhabited space. A tiny, tiny subset of people exposed to such conditions can develop the ability to perform small feats like levitating coins or removing a headache with nothing but their mind. A decade of study has resulted in the SCG determining that these psionics, mild as they are, don't pose an operational or health risk, but they do encourage operants to register with a psionic regulation body like the Cuchulain Foundation. However, psionics-enhancing implants, drugs and procedures are illegal in most human space, and statistically seem to end in death for those foolish enough to make use of them. Being caught with a cerebroenergetic enhancer, or the drug Three Eye, will net you a hefty prison sentence."

The Cuchulain Foundation

The Cuchulain Foundation is a non-profit body based out of Neptune orbit. Their logo is an upward-facing radio telescope dish, usually printed in green. They perform niche research on behalf of private parties, the SGC, and their own interests. They are also the single largest psionic registration and oversight body in human space, responsible for educating and training operants at no cost, even across territorial and political lines.
