I enjoyed the hell out of this one, too. Clearly, the online games you've been playing, Gryphon, were by way of research! (Enemy cruiser foundered!) XD

It's actually more than that, I believe. I'm pretty sure some of the Psi Corps stories implied, if they didn't say outright, that the Psi Corps culture is very intentionally designed to compel its members into believing they're a superior race. That's what the people running it presumably believed themselves, of course, and indoctrination and programming is not just common but standard procedure there. They really DO believe they're the best, which serves them pretty well when subjugating masses and makes them horribly unprepared when facing true elite soldiers.

Much like the emotional devastation and despair the Nazis and citizens in Germany itself, who I believe were largely kept out of the loop on the real progress of the war, must have felt when the Americans, British, etc. on the west and the Russians on the east finally showed. (I am not an expert on WW2, mind you, but ISTR their losses weren't exactly in the papers.)
