The Bio sensor, indeed, is the best candidate to explain all that weird stuff in
the Z and ZZ series. They are probably what sparked all this discussion in the
first place -- magnified brainwave (more like anger) negating beam shots -- give
me a break.

This is a nice summary. What I observe, however, is a need for us to draw the
line between NT abilities that belong to the battlefield and those which don't.
It seems like the former would include heightened psycho-wave/brainwave emission
and 3D instincts. All the rest such as increased empathy and all that
humanistic, idealistic stuff belong to the latter, which would have a better use
at Dakar, in front of all those indecisive Federation representatives. In the
warfare section, Amuro scores much better in the 3D instincts part. That is why
he is such a skilled pilot, who doesn't need an NT unit to score well on the
battlefield. By contrast, Quess and Puru II are endowed with high brainwave
emission, but their piloting skills...
