DESCRIPTION

You preserve the mind of the slain creature, keeping it from permanently departing from its body. This power must be manifested as soon as the creature is slain, although subsequent manifestations can be used to extend the duration of the effect. This effect takes place before the creature is removed from the collective due to the creature’s death. For the duration of this effect, the slain creature can be affected by psionic revivify as if it had died within 1 round, but psionic revivify must be channeled through specially-treated crystals similar to cognizance crystals that cost 5,000 gp. The psionic energy in the crystal is consumed in the manifestation and the crystal becomes inert and has no value.

Augment: If you spend 6 additional power points, you can affect a creature that was in your collective when it died for up to 24 hours after its death.
