Colonial Military Institute

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

One of the Colonial Military Institute's endeavors was a study into mental powers, apparently prompted by the mythical powers of the Lords of Kobol. Commander Adama participated in a study into telekinesis prior to the birth of Apollo.

The information learned in the study helped Adama in formulating an ineffective defense against the mental powers of Count Iblis (War of the Gods).
