I can appreciate this, but telepathy is already a huge part of Star Trek and that does have very direct connections to psuedoscience. Editor John W. Campbell (the guy who inspired Odo's counterpart in Far Beyond the Stars) was one of the most important people in the history of science fiction and he really believed in psi powers. He is the reason that psi powers are such a huge part of so much science fiction.
Campbell also worked with L. Ron Hubbard in the development of Dianetics. However, he walked away from Hubbard when he founded The Church of Scientology. At that point Campbell realized that Hubbard was a con-man.
If Betazoid and Vulcan psi abilities are okay with you but the stuff in Where No One Has Gone Before is a bridge to far then I don't have a problem with that, but I'd put it all in the same category. I'm happy to enjoy that stuff in fiction but it has to be admitted that it's had some very unfortunate connections to real-world pseudoscience.
In the past couple years there's been a huge backlash against Campbell's honored place in the history of science fiction, not because of his pseudoscience but because he was racist even by the standards of his time.
