The Weylan ability to focus on multiple lines of thought, while doing so with the quickness of the Peloran mind they were based on, allowed them to fly starfighters and starships directly. Without advanced computer systems running interference. Weylan crews interfaced directly with the individual system controls inside the central computers, while cooperating with each other in a fugue state. They became the collective brain of Albion starships, able to operate at least as fast as any electronic computer system, while maintaining the common sense and randomness that humanity enjoys to this day. A starship operated by the Weylan reacted faster and better than anything else in space. Their warships were simply more effective than anything run by mere electronic machines, and that brought them victory after victory when the last great war came upon them all.
