Sectoid Commander Autopsy

After an extensive analysis of this specimen's brain tissue, we've discovered some unusual activity in the synaptic connections that may be the source of the... abilities our troops encountered in the field. Although somewhat similar in physical appearance to the Sectoid we previously identified, this "Commander" variant has an easily differentiated internal composition. We've theorized that these "enhanced electrical synapses," capable of transmitting nerve impulses at nearly three times the normal rate, are the product of careful genetic manipulation. If our theory holds true, that means the aliens are capable of modifying even the most complex tissue at a genetic level...

If our theory holds true, that means the aliens are capable of modifying even the most complex tissue at a genetic level. In regards to our own genetic research, I am hopeful that we can use the Sectoid Commander's enhanced synaptic connections to improve the capabilities of our own soldiers, perhaps in a way that would redirect the psionic powers utilized by the aliens back unto themselves.
