But for 200 research, you are getting on average 429.4 bonus research. That is, you get 629.4 worth of research for the cost of 200. If you have a normal race with RC2, that would take 40 scientists worth of effort (40 x 3+RC2 = 200) to accomplish (say 10 over 4 turns).

40 genius scientists (at 6 points for the trait) with RC2 would be able to research 320 points (40 x 6+RC2), or only 75% of the brilliant.

I think you also need to take into account all of the other stuff that Genius affects; for example, how it interacts with persnickety/SI/morale/everything else.

BR is silo'd in that it gives you a bundle of (unpredictable) RP, but it doesn't combine with anything else.

N.B. I haven't run any numbers myself, just theorizing.
