Default Precognitive Parry

Under Precog Parry (P62 Martial Arts) it states, "This skill allows you to parry attacks that normally come in to fast to parry- bullets, beams, etc.- without having ETC." In the last paragraph of ETS it states, "Somethings (eg lazer beams ) simply travel to fast for you to react." Martial Arts book is implying I can do something that I normally cant do to begin with. Can I get some clarification?

If you have ETS you can use the Parry Missile Weapons skills on such Fast attacks.

Precognitive Parry is a non ETS option

Pay less attention to implications and more to what is actually written. The statement "Precog Parry allows you parry atacks that normally come in to fast to parry-bullets, beams, etc. - without having ETC" does not say that that having ETC will let you parry beams. PP lets you parry bullets and beams. That's what you should take away from the sentence.

Default:
You can parry neither bullets nor beams.

If you have Enhanced Time Sense:
You can parry bullets with Parry Missile Weapons skill at -5 (p. B212), but you can do nothing against beams.

If you have Precognitive Parry:
You can parry bullets and beams regardless whether you have ETS or not.
