TARDIS Technical Index

Complete Systems Shutdown

Standard Systems Shutdown is enacted using a lever found on the Console. When used it deactivates almost every system and circuit (including most of the life support systems). Only the peripheral reserves will be accessible while in this state. Complete Systems Shutdown involves folding back the omega configuration, halting the exponential cross-field, closing the pathways to conditional states seven to seventeen and ending the Main and Auxiliary Drives.
