So, how cool was Counselor Deanna Troi, a half human, half betazoid empath, who got to advise one of Starfleet's finest captains, Jean-Luc Picard? I LOVE Deanna Troi and the fact that she could "feel" what others were feeling. She could tell if someone was lying or anxious. What's even cooler about this is that empaths are real. They do exist on this planet and you just might be one and not know it.
