Translator microbes

In the continuity of Farscape, Translator microbes are microscopic organisms that colonize the base of the brain, enabling those infected by them to understand the speech of other life forms, even if they are being spoken to in a language that they are unfamiliar with. Translator microbes are usually delivered into a person's body by way of Diagnostic Repair Drones (DRDs). Most life forms are injected with these microbes at birth, but they can also be administered at any time during the growth cycle. In function, they are similar to the Babel Fish featured in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
