Think Tank webcast

Think Tank station. (WC: Shada)

Dr. Skagra set up the project and paid "handsome fees" to A. St. John D. Caldera, A. S. T. Thira, G. V. Santori, L. D. Ia and R. F. Akrotiri to join him. Together, they created a sphere which could pool intellectual resources by electronic mind transference. However, Skagra stole the minds of the other scientists and left their mindless bodies there for some time.

The station and the aged scientists were later destroyed in an explosion caused by a burning Krarg after a visit by the Fourth Doctor and Chris Parsons. (PROSE: Shada)
