Focus drugs are known to be used by Martian naval intelligence.[1]

Use and effectsEdit

Focus drugs are inserted orally and the user must suck on it for its effect to persist. One pill only lasts a few minutes.

The user is granted greater awareness and recall, making it possible to better detect even small changes in expression. For this reason, Martian naval intelligence uses this drug during interrogation.

The usage of focus drugs is easy to spot, as the pupils of the person using it contract to tiny points.


Focus drugs were used by Lieutenant Lopez when he interrogated Jim Holden.
