    I thought they are pretty useless, except against the non-NT pilots.
With such a high cost, why bother?

    I wonder why NT are so hard to come by - maybe that's why Haman wants
Judo to join so badly....

    At least they seems to have more NT ability than Fa....

    I thought all Newtypes can "talk" to eachother without psycommu - it's
just with psychommu, even machines can "listen" to it. In the original
Gundam, and throughout Zeta, people use NT power to talk in several
instances without the need of psycommu or something like that....

    I thought almost all Gundam fans agrees on that....

    Well, I thought almost all of the MS in V Gundam uses that Minovski
