TARDIS Technical Index

Emergency Power Booster

This small red box contains the maximum power-drive switch. When plugged into the console and activated it diverts all of the Eye of Harmony and Ancillary power to the Dynamorphic Generators in a massive surge. This is a dangerous device to use, as the Generators will overload if they receive more than 1000 omegas for longer than a few seconds. This could cause the mercury in the Fluid Links to vaporize, and will lead to the eventual destruction of a TARDIS. If the TARDIS diverts all power to its drive systems it will be unable to activate is defence mechanisms. It would then be possible for intruders to breach the main doors. For these reasons the Power Booster is not usually plugged into the console.
