- Used to send a list of messages.
- If a ship that's listed is not present when the event fires, its message will either be sent by Command (high priority) or not at all (normal and low priorities). If you want a dialog sequence participant to arrive during a chain of messages, use separate events, possibly with (has-arrived-delay "<ship name>").
