Dalek Travel Machines - Mark 6 Travel Machine

In Use By

Generation 09

Overview

During the course of the Time War, a number of backup plans were conceived by the various strategic groups such as the Cult of Skaro and the Eternity Circle for the possibility of Dalek defeat. One such was the use of Gallifreyan technology to store an army of Daleks which were then hidden away in the void between universes. Another was the storage of Dalek genetic material within Progenitor devices which were scattered throughout space and time. One such was recovered by the survivors of Davros' Reality Project and eventually activated. The Paradigm within this capsule included the design for a new Travel Machine. This, Mark Six Travel Machine, was bigger and more imposing than any previous design. After a period of general use for all ranks, the casing was determined to be suitable for higher ranking Daleks and their guards only.

Features

The Mark Six Travel Machine Casing
The Mark Six Travel Machine Casing

The Mark Six was a larger and bulkier casing than any of its predecessors. This was partly down to the thicker layer of bonded-polycarbide used within the casing. Additionally, this was caused by the inclusion of an internal storage compartment which held alternative appendages that could be switched out with the standard Gun and Sucker combination. These appendages emerge from the rear of the casing, which is devoid of Sensor Globes.

Forty-eight (48) Sensor globes surround the rest of the lower section of the casing. These are positioned on thicker armour plates. Above this section, the appendage mounting is bulkier than previous casings to allow the switching of them. The Dalek creature is housed behind the neck section of the casing which rather than being an exposed mesh grid is a more protected overlapping series of four armoured vent sections. The eye stalk is larger, and allows the Dalek creature a greater range of viewing modes. Two large luminoscity dischargers are positioned on the top of the dome section.

The majority of the computer systems and the casing’s reactor are housed within the skirt area. This reactor is more powerful and provides more than enough power for the increased output of the Dalek's weapon(s) and the large motive unit that allows the Dalek full flight capability. This casing was forseen as the ultimate Dalek design at its conception.
