It is primarily used to wire into the brain, accessing the user's language centers to render what others say comprehensible, and to produce in the user similarly comprehensible speech. Originally it was developed to reduce the likelihood of spies found among Stenza camps, and this use has been broadened to prevent rebellion in conquered peoples.
Access & Availability
Extremely widely used across the Nine Systems, thanks to the fact that the Stenza rulers require its use and have crafted it to render the thousands of native languages spoken by the empire's assorted species to translate into Mudeweian Stenza in order to be universally understood. (Typically users do not notice a difference, but widespread knowledge of this effect has had interesting psychological complications.)
