Intuitive empaths, telepaths and other psychic assets are essential for the success of the secret space program. Jason Rice describes the testing and training he recieved, with IDARF, that put him into a line of service as an intuitive empath. Though he was born with natural abilities, he was given nanites and training to boost his empathic talents. During his time, he was able to effectively communicate with some E.T. species and endure psychic attacks from hostile aliens.
