TARDIS Technical Index

Farquazi Force Field

This enhanced shield systems was first developed by the Farquazi in the 300th Segment of Time. While Extrapolator-based force fields of this type became standard issue on the Type 90 War TARDIS, some operators of older timeships improvised their own using a Tribophysical Waveform Macro-Kinetic Extrapolator.

A Tribophysical Waveform Macro-Kinetic Extrapolator is designed to function as a pan-dimensional surfboard that is powered by an external dimensional explosion. In certain time zones these devices can be cheaply purchased at airlock sales.

The Extrapolator can, however, be linked to the massive dimensional energy of the Heart of the TARDIS. When this is done, the Extrapolator generates a powerful force-field that can deflect many of the temporal weapons used by the Daleks in the Time War. It can ever be used to prevent the TARDIS from being drawn in by the field created by excessive amounts of huon particles.

Not only can it deflect energy it can also enhance the transducer power cells, allowing the TARDIS to lock on to a target and drain its energy. This enhancement can also be used to speed up the refuelling of a TARDIS's Heart when power from the Prime Eye of Harmony is unavailable.
