Emergency Stop

(aka Free-Float)

While in Vortex travel the Emergency Stop function can be used to put a TARDIS into Free-Float mode. The hyper-dimensional neutralizer circuit halts the TARDIS's flight and suspends it in the interdimensional space of the Vortex. A TARDIS can suspend itself in the Vortex forever. Emergency Stops occurs automatically if a "kink" is discovered in the dematerialization protocols or if a fault occurs that prevents a TARDIS from re-materializing.
