TARDIS Technical Index

Warp Ellipse Cutout Circuit

Warp Ellipse Cutout in action

ATARDIS has a Warp Ellipse Cutout Circuit, which triggers an Automatic Emergency Landing and an alarm if a TARDIS is about to collide with a vessel in spatial-temporal warp ellipse orbit. It was erroneously believed that vessels with the ability to enter spatial-temporal orbit were never built. Operators should be aware that a difficult temporal deviation will be required to escape from a spatial-temporal warp ellipse.
