The Strategist Dalek was one of the ranks of Dalek which emerged from the Progenitor in 1941. It was created with the purpose of acting as a battle planner for Dalek troops.

History

The original Strategist, along with the other original four, the Supreme, Eternal, Drone and Scientist, was created by the Progenitor when the old Daleks tricked the Eleventh Doctor. The first Strategist Dalek destroyed an "Ironside" Dalek and the leader gold Dalek. It worked most of the machinery inside the Dalek ship and escaped through the Time corridor with the others when their plans to destroy Earth failed. (TV: Victory of the Daleks)

Later, a number of Strategists would be seen in the Supreme Council Chamber on a restored Kaalann, alongside the new Dalek Emperor, who was also coloured blue. (GAME: City of the Daleks)

They may have acted as the Emperor's Personal Guard or members of the Dalek Council. In the case of the former, red drones with black domes were used for this purpose at a later stage. (GAME: The Eternity Clock)

A Strategist Dalek, referred to as a Chief Strategist, was in command of the platoon that attacked Station 7, with several other Strategists, Scientists and Drones under its leadership. (COMIC: The Only Good Dalek) When the Daleks reintroduced the bronze casing for standard Dalek foot soldiers, a black Dalek took up a similar role. (COMIC: The Dalek Project)

Several Strategists were present in the Dalek Emperor's flagship when the Daleks invaded Earth with a piece of the Eternity Clock in 2106. River Song was chased by one of the Strategists in a devastated London as she traversed a ruined building. (GAME: The Eternity Clock)

When the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams were transported to the spaceship of the Dalek Parliament, at least one Strategist could be seen amongst the Parliament members. (TV: Asylum of the Daleks)
