Extreme Emergency Lever
If used by the Linked Time Lord Operator, this lever triggers the Distress-Call which sends an emergency All Frequencies Alert to the High Council of Gallifrey. This lever also serves a secondary purpose if the Symbiotically Linked Time Lord is drifting free in the Space/Time Vortex. Such action should be undertaken any time a TARDIS is captured by an advanced species. In such a case a TARDIS will use the time contours to automatically lock onto the linked Time Lord. Once this link has been established a crew member can pull the Extreme Emergency lever, and the TARDIS can rescue the Time Lord, materializing around him.
