Stattenheim Remote Teleport Control

Stattenheim Remote Control

Normally operating a TARDIS by Remote Control drastically reduces the life span of the Time Control Unit's Space-Time Element. The Stattenheim Remote Teleport Control is a method of remote TARDIS control that does not cause this damage. With it a Time Lord can summon his TARDIS to his current location at the push of a button

The system was secretly perfected around the time of the War Lord Malfeasance Tribunal. The CIA installed this newly developed system on capsules being used by their agents, like the Proto-Type 97. Its existence would not become general knowledge for almost 450 years. The system is found only Capsules that have the Mark X refit installed. It takes several days worth of work to uninstall a Stattenheim Remote Teleport Control.

The Statenheim Control uses a teleport control which sets up a twin symbiotic link to the central diaphragm. The hand-held Recall Button Disc broadcasts a Stattenheim signal through the Vortex, which summons the operator's TARDIS when the operator is in the field. Any Time Lord with a properly tuned Recall Disc can exert dual-control over a TARDIS with this system. The Disc can also be used to get a TARDIS dematerialize and enter a parking orbit in the Space-Time Vortex to await summons. When not in use the small black Recall Button Disc is stored inside a transparent dome built into the console.
