When activated, this causes a TARDIS to swap locations with another nearby pre-selected TARDIS provided that both capsules have been set to Trans-Replicator Mode. The idea behind this system is to allow for the easy return and replacement of a damaged TARDIS that needs repair. Thus Trans-Replicator Mode will still operate even when one of the timeships is in need of major repairs. It will also function even when one of the capsules is trapped by external forces.
