These shields help to protect a TARDIS during Vortex travel. With great difficulty Vortex Shields can be extended to imprison another Time Travel Capsule operating in the Vortex, however the shields can only hold the other capsule for 2 minutes. The TARDIS Defense Mechanism also acts to hide the TARDIS from potentially dangerous life forms that exist in the Vortex. The Exo-Shell has a Temporal Field which protects its interior from temporal attacks. Vortex Wraiths would be destroyed by the TARDIS's defenses if they attempted to invade the interior. (also see Defense Force-Field Prisms)
