Unless I'm missing something, they can. Take a peek at Psychic Reformation (p. 127).

That power sure seems worth it as a safety net to redo power and feat selections within 10 minutes (!), provided you want to pay the minor XP cost.

You are correct... the problem is, one's 1st level Power choices are rather far back in one's history. So it's a lot of XP to rid yourself of a stinker.

Again, it would be nice if they could change powers like a Sorcerer changes spells, not by spending XP.

(Also, Psychic Reformation may be banned IMC, depending on how much abuse I can get out of it in my friend's campaign...)

I dunno. At, say, 10th level, spending a mere 450 XP to reshuffle those 1st level feats and powers seems damn cheap. In fact, if you're heading into the lair of the Big Bad and you know what kind of opposition you're going to meet, spending 50-100XP to redo your last two levels to optimize for that end-game encounter also seems really cheap.

Were I to play a Psion to any level of note, Psychic Reformation almost seems like a no-brainer to me. Then again, I'm new to psionics so maybe I'm missing something blindingly obvious.

Oh, lets also not forget you also have the ability to redo anyone in your party's feat and skill selections (powers if psioinic) as well if they so desire! ("Man, I hardly ever use Cleave or Great Cleave anymore." "Perhaps I can help, friend...") ;)

I'm not saying it's a bad power. In fact, I think it's too strong. What I dislike is: class features should not be hidden in spells. This is why animal friendship went away, and good riddance.

Anyway... it's not a 1st level psionic power, so we should probably drop it.
