Time travel

40,045articles in progress

Time travel was, as the name suggested, the process of travelling through time, even in all directions. In the 26th century individuals who time travelled were sometimes known as persons of meta-temporal displacement. (PROSE: The Mary-Sue Extrusion) According to the Eleventh Doctor, "Time travel is damage. It's like a tear in the fabric of reality." (TV: The Name of the Doctor)

Methods Edit

Technological or biotechnological methods Edit

By space-time vessel Edit

Travel using time vessel commonly involves the Time Vortex.

Other technological means Edit

A warp drive accident fractured one individual, Scaroth, into "fragments" scattered through various eras of time and linked by telepathy. (TV: City of Death) Another warp drive accident had the effect of propelling the vehicle in question roughly sixty-five million years back in time. (TV: Earthshock)

Mirrors Edit

Time travel by use of mirrors was based on the principle that mirrors reflect light and time travel is moving faster than light. If static electricity was passed through the mirrors, more than images could be reflected and whole objects could be sent back in time. As well, certain trace elements in the machine, like taranium, were also needed. (PROSE: The Wheel of Ice)

By psychic power or other natural ability Edit

By space-time anomaly Edit

Taking "the slow path" Edit

Some individuals, by necessity, sought to take what the Tenth Doctor once described as "the slow path," (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace) spending hundreds or thousands of years patiently waiting to return to a desired time. (PROSE: Birthright) A less arduous method would involve cryogenics or some other form of life suspension.
