Magnetraps were devices used by the Daleks.
Magnetraps could pull spacecraft down to a planet with magnetic attraction exerted by the spotlight-like devices on the four corners of the landing pad. A ship could be brought down so gently that a sleeping crew would not wake before the ship was boarded.
Behind the scenes Edit
- While referred to in-story as a "magnetrap", the feature Dalek War Machines in which it first appears refers to it as a "magnatrap".
