Leadership Casings - Supreme Council Casing

In Use By

The Dalek Supreme Council – Generation 01.

Overview

Early in their history, the First Generation Daleks established a strict hierarchy for their race. The first twenty Daleks to follow the Dalek Prime off the assembly lines set about experimenting on themselves in order to enhance their cerebral capabilities. Eight were terminated during the experiments, but the remaining twelve became the Dalek Supreme Council. The Dalek Prime ordered that modifications be made to the standard Mark Three Travel Machine in order that the members of the council could be easily distinguished from the rank and file of the race. As with the Dalek Prime's casing, the systems within the Supreme Council Casing are kept at a state of the art level making them more powerful than the remainder of the Dalek race.

Features

Dalek Supreme Council Casing
Dalek Supreme Council Casing

A heavily modified variation of the Mark Three Travel machine, this casing was mounted on an enlarged base. The design for this was taken from the motive unit attachment of the Mark Two Travel Machine. The Luminoscity dischargers were also enlarged on this casing – ensuring all around knew who was speaking. The casing's modified eyestalk, also flashed in synchronisation with the dischargers. The gun-stick featured an enlarged barrel and was more powerful than that of a regular Mark Three casing's weapon.

The Council were usually seen with a weapon attachment and either a sucker / data probe attachment or a manipulator claw. As with all such casings, these attachments could be changed when required. The casing was given a black and gold finish – a mixture of the colours given to the two Dalek Supreme ranks and an indication of the Supreme Council's heightened rank in the hierarchy.

Internally, the casing featured enhanced life-support and computer systems similar to those in the Dalek Prime's casing. Other than these enhancements, the layout of the casing was identical to the standard Mark Three Travel Machine. The Kaled mutant was located in the mid-section of the casing in a secure habitation module beneath which was the nutrient tank that fed and supported the occupant. The habitation module was more heavily shielded than that in a standard Mark Three casing, primarily to protect from any energy leakage that may have occurred from the increased energy output of the weapon system. The power generator produced increased output in order to support the enhanced capabilities of the casing and the motive unit allowed for the same mobility as a regular Mark Three casing.
