TARDIS Technical Index


These devices and programs are responsible for the interior Environmental Metaphor of a TARDIS. These include the Protyon Unit, Relative Dimensional Stabilizers, Time Vector Generator, and Architectural Configuration Program.

The Auto-Systems also ensure that a TARDIS's Reality Quotient remains stable at 0.9 and that the crew members' quotients remain at 1. If displaced from their proper time state the Auto-Systems will attempt to correct the problem, but they will need a Standing Wave (created by a binary induction system) to home in on.
