Q: Which is cooler: monkeys, robots, pirates, or ninjas?

Yarrrrrgh!

Hi Awen, nice to meet you and welcome to the forums

I hate to be the one to point this out but Betazoid's are Empaths, not Telepaths. This means that they don't read minds. They are actually very sensitive to emotions as opposed to sensing actual thought....iirc...

Actually, I believe that full Betazoid's are Telepaths. From my understanding and I could be entirely wrong, Deanna was only half Betazoid, therefore she was only empathic. I'll have to do more research on this one.

ummm no your wrong betazoids are telepaths deana troi was half betazoid so she was only able to direct communicate with betazoids or a human that she was incredibly close to like riker. otherwise she was only able to read enough of someones thoughts to be considered empathic

From the Betazoid article on Memory Alpha

Quote:
Inter-species reproduction involving Betazoids often affects the psionic abilities of the offspring - most commonly the children of such a union develop empathic abilities as their primary psionic talent, while their telepathic abilities, though existing, are rather below average for Betazoids. Usually the telepathy of these half-breeds, without extensive training, is limited to communication with other empaths or telepaths and full telepathic contact with emotionally very close persons (for example, an imzadi).
