Dalek CombatantsEdit

The Dalek Fleet consisted of 500 traditional saucers, each holding around 2,000 Daleks. The fleet was led by a mothership, holding 5,000 Daleks and the Supreme Dalek.

The saucers were armed with Energy Lasers, Explosive Missiles and Hydrogen Bombs. They were used to destroy the larger buildings, such as skyscrapers, but most humans were killed by individual Dalek units.

Dalek HierarchyEdit

At the top of the hierarchy was the Supreme Dalek. Though it led the invasion, it never actually left the mothership.

Each Dalek Saucer had a Saucer Commander. These were in charge of each of the Dalek units on their saucer, but were below the Supreme.

Regular Dalek units were bred to obey their Saucer Commanders and the Supreme. They were ranked higher than the Special Weapons Daleks.

At the bottom of the hierarchy were the Special Weapons Daleks. There were some on each saucer, and they wielded mighty special weapons cannons. They had no command over any other units, and could not speak aloud.

Dalek DesignsEdit

The Supreme Dalek was larger than regular Daleks. It had a red paint job, with golden globes on its sides. It had larger, golden disks round the 'neck' segment, supported by chunky, golden, metal bars. It also had an extra luminosity discharger at the rear of the dome.

The Saucer Commanders were identical to regular Daleks, but had a completely black paint job.

Regular Daleks had bronze casings, and were the same design as those seen in the Dalek Wars.

Special Weapons Daleks were larger than regular Daleks. They had the same bronze colouration, but no luminosity dischargers and a flatter dome. Instead of an eyestalk, manipulation arm and gunstick, they had one massive cannon, which could swivel independantly of the body. It could fire yellow energy bolts capable of destroying other Daleks.


The Massacre at Vanha PrisonEdit

After the initial apocalypse, one of the first large slaughters took place at the Vanha Prison. Over forty survivors had gathered their, behind stone and steel walls, to stay safe. However, the Daleks made short work of the defences, exterminating most of the survivors.

However, there was a second way out, through a tunnel that went under the prison. The tunnel also had a junction, the second way leading to a pre-furnished cavern that could support the survivors for a week if need be.

Sixteen survivors made it out of the tunnel, but the Daleks were waiting, and nine were killed. The remaining seven went into hiding in the cavern, where the Daleks could follow. The Daleks simply secured boulders over the tunnel exits, and placed guards there.

The survivors died from a combination of lack of air, food and fluids, as the tunnel was airtight after the Daleks had secured it.

Captain Jack's RebellionEdit

Captain Jack had been rendered immortal by the power of the Time Vortex, and so the Daleks dumped him in the Pacific Ocean during the initial apocalypse. On the 28th October, he returned to land and organised a rebellion, with survivor Shadow and some of his allies, including Blade, Cobra and Carver.

Jack used a defabricator cannon to destroy a Dalek, but the cannon needed thirty minutes to recharge, so the Daleks brought in the Special Weapons Dalek. It crushed the rebellion, and the Daleks took Jack aboard a saucer to Skaro, where he arrived a few days later. Shadow was the only survivor.

The Rebel DalekEdit

After the failed rebellion, Shadow managed to get inside a Special Weapons Dalek. He discovered there was a living creature inside, but removed it, and tried to control the Dalek himself. Though it was cramped, he managed to for a brief period of time, before the Daleks realised why the Special Weapons Dalek was rebelling, and they destroyed the casing. Shadow, being inside, was also killed.

Dalek FactoryEdit

In the 40th Century, Earth was still controlled by the Dalek Empire, and they used it as a massive Dalek factory to produce soldiers during the Dalek Wars. However, in the 45th century, when the Daleks vanished from the universe, so did they, and Earth was left abandoned. The Vinvocci later claimed the planet.
