    This is similar to the wild talent feat.
    Wild Talent [General]

    Your mind wakes to a previously unrealized talent for psionics.

    Your latent power of psionics flares to life, conferring upon you the designation of a psionic character. As a psionic character, you gain a reserve of 2 power points and can take psionic feats, metapsionic feats, and psionic item creation feats. You do not, however, gain the ability to manifest powers simply by virtue of having this feat.

    I suppose you could simply alter this feat to grant you a single 1st level power as well as 2 power points. You could also make your class levels now count as Manifester levels for the purpose of calculating power DCs and effects.

    Power points
    Prerequisites: Psionic talent.
    Benifit: you gain two extra power points. These power points are added to your power point reserve.
    This was already covered with Psionic talent (which is better because it increases each time it is taken.)

    Psionic Talent [Psionic]

    You gain additional power points to supplement those you already had.
    Having a power point reserve.

    When you take this feat for the first time, you gain 2 power points.

    You can take this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat after the first time, the number of power points you gain increases by 1.

    New power
    Prerequisites: Psionic talent.
    Benifit: you gain one power whose maximum level is equal to twice your manifester level.
    I like this but if you make manifester level = character level then there is no need to double it. However, like your other ideas, it's already been covered. Take a look.

    Expanded Knowledge [Psionic]

    You learn another power.
    Manifester level 3rd.

    Add to your powers known one additional power of any level up to one level lower than the highest-level power you can manifest. You can choose any power, including powers from another discipline’s list or even from another class’s list.

    You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you learn one new power at any level up to one less than the highest-level power you can manifest.

    rapid recharge
    Prerequisites: psionic talent, character level 9th.
    Benifits: You regain power points at the rate of one per three quarters of an hour.
    Special: You can gain this feat a second time, increasing the regain rate to one per half hour.
    I dig this, if PP charges over time an increase in the rate of charge sounds fun. Do the characters have to meditate to charge or does it naturally refill?
    Maybe make meditation a requirement to regain PP, then you can make a feat to allow characters to recharge PP without meditation.

    Just my 2cp...
