T/E Rating System

Telepaths can read thoughts, empaths can read emotions. The only exceptions are when reading the minds of species with four lobed brains, most notably, the Ferengi.

The ability of a telepath or empath can be easily referenced using the following table:

Telepathic/Empathic Rating
0 No telepathic or empathic abilities
0+ Extrasensory Perception (ESP)
1 Same species, touch only
2 Same species, no contact required
3 Species with two lobed brain, touch only
4 Species with two lobed brain, no contact required
5 Any species, touch only
6 Any species, no contact required
Readability
NR Non-readable entity; most likely four-lobed brain
  • When writing the reference, include a T before the number for a Telepath (T3) and an E for an Empath (E5).
  • Use NR for non-readable individuals. For instance, Ferengi would be listed as T0 NR because they possess no telepathic abilities (T0) and are non-readable (NR) due to their four-lobed brains.
