TARDIS Technical Index

Control Relay Rooms

A control relay room

In addition to the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Control Rooms there are also several Control Relay Rooms which have consoles that look like smaller versions of the one found in the Secondary Control Room. If a severe trauma, such as a rupture of the dimensional interface, severs the operator's symbiotic link and disables the main control room one of these emergency console plinths will be generated in a randomly chosen storage room. The original architecture program will reboot once the symbiotic link is renewed. Given time, a TARDIS can rebuild/grow new Control Rooms to replace one that has been destroyed.
