TARDIS Technical Index


These contain the stellar maps and navigation data, which can be used by the operator in conjunction with the Astral Map to set the coordinates. The Information-Banks' Location Finder can be used to export coordinates to the Directional Unit. There is a large bank of flight computers that house the TARDIS Journey Logs. These logs automatically store data related to the TARDIS's navigation through the vortex. Each space-time jump is given a journey reference number for easy recall. Using the Fast Return Switch information can then be recalled and fed into the Directional Unit to return to a previously visited time zone. The autolog indicator light will be lit when a TARDIS is relying on this data Journey Logs. Journey Logs of the flight computer are near impossible to alter (i.e. forge a false entry) but are easy to wipe.
