TARDIS Technical Index

Remote Operation Module

A Remote Operations Module is an enhanced Recall Circuit that gives the Celestial Intervention Agency (or the High Council if they have access to the right codes) homing control over a TARDIS. This override allows them to override the operator's programmed course and steer the TARDIS. They can force it to materialize in any Time Zone and prevent dematerialization.

As with most forms of remote TARDIS navigation, use of the Remote Control drastically reduces the life span of a TARDIS's Zyton-7. This is why most Time Lords become infuriated when homing control is enacted on their ship. Should an operator find a way to override Remote Control, the CIA can use Collection Beams on any dematerialized TARDIS whose location in the Vortex is known.
