Emergency Dematerialization Switch

If this switch is thrown, a TARDIS will dematerialize immediately. It will then wait in Limbo until the Epsilon Coordinates are inputted and the Transit Switch is thrown. When used during a programmed flight, the Emergency Dematerialization Switch allows the operator to input new coordinates into the Directional Unit and thus change course. It is possible, but difficult, to alter a TARDIS's time curve - and thus its temporal destination - whilst in the Vortex. Emergency Dematerializations bypass the Multi-Loop Stabilizer, resulting in "rougher" landings.
