Lord Ferain told the Fourth Doctor the Time Lords had foreseen a time when the Daleks would dominate the universe. He offered the Doctor a mission in time to avert the Daleks' creation, make them less aggressive or find some inherent weakness in their makeup. The Doctor agreed and asked for the coordinates of Skaro, the Dalek homeworld. Ferain told the Doctor he was already there. He vanished after giving him a time ring to return to the TARDIS when his mission was complete. (TV: Genesis of the Daleks)
