Entity messaging is a powerful mechanism in Starbound that allows you to send and receive message strings to and from entities. This includes different scripts on players (mech deployment, active item, tech) and even object or npc scripts.

For some, most information here is trivial at this point. For those new to message handling, the wiki covers the basics when it comes to sending and receiving messages.
