from I’d Rather Be Killing Monsters
Perhaps it’s just me - but River Tam’s training programme as revealed in Serenity doesn’t make a hell of a lot of sense. Why exactly would you give advanced combat training to a psychic? How does a psychic kill people when she can sense their feelings and last thoughts etc.? But most importantly of all - who thinks that someone who has been rendered insane and unable to control her emotions as a result of their brain “stripping” is an ideal subject for military combat training?
