Invasion Of The Daleks

Dalek Empire: Invasion Of The DaleksSusan “Suz” Mendes’ peaceful life of conducting mineralogical surveys on the planet Vega VI is shattered abruptly when a Dalek invasion fleet blasts its way through the Vega system, enslaving or exterminating millions of humans. Heartier members of the population are robotized, receiving cybernetic implants that give the Daleks direct control over them, while the other survives are forced to work in mines – often until they die. Alby Brook, a friend of Suz, ran when the fleet appeared, and although he escaped to safety, he now wants nothing more than to return to Vega VI and rescue her. However, with the prospect of a new human-Dalek war looming, Brook – who was actually there on a covert mission to find a rogue Knight of Velyshaa named Kalendorf – is called to full-time service…and told to forget a woman who is, in all likelihood, dead. He befriends an overenthusiastic reporter, Gordon Pellan, who relishes broadcasting live from the war zone. When Suz attracts the attention of the Emperor Dalek by defying the Daleks’ death threats if she doesn’t stop campaigning for the slave workers’ basic human rights, she finds herself in a position to help others and save lives. She’s more than a little surprised to learn that the first life she has saved is Kalendorf. When the tide of battle cuts Alby off from his superiors and their orders, he throws caution to the wind and embarks on a mission to save Suz, dragging Pellan into the fray with him.

The Human Factor

Dalek Empire: The Human FactorSix months after becoming the mouthpiece of the Daleks’ billions of slaves, negotiating with the Dalek Supreme and touring Dalek-subjugated worlds, Susan Mendes has become troubled. Kalendorf feels that she’s become a collaborator, but agrees to join her as she’s shuttled by the Daleks from planet to planet to give her inspirational pitches to the slave populations there. On his own, Kalendorf visits a warehouse where one group of slaves trying to mount a rebellion, and he tries to quash their effort to save their lives – and to avoid derailing a larger rally for freedom to come. When Suz learns of the rebellion, she asks the Daleks to let her negotiate with the rebels – but the rebelling slave won’t do as she asks. Suz steps aside and tells the Daleks to exterminate the rebels, and Kalendorf is appalled – she’s gone too far to the other side. In the meantime, Alby and Pellan have traced Suz’s trail and close in on her location – but the Daleks are also closing in on their ship.

Death To The Daleks!

Dalek Empire: Death To The Daleks!When Alby Brook returns to his superiors at the Space Security Service, he’s stunned into silence when they execute Gordon Pellan on sight – and is even more stunned when he’s told that Pellan was a Dalek agent, reporting on Alby’s whereabouts. Alby has a new assignment, but not one he’s eager to take on: he is to contact Suz and find out if she knows anything the Daleks have found out about Project Infinity…and if she does, Alby is to kill her. Suz is losing support elsewhere too, as Kalendorf chafes against her willingness to help the Daleks motivate their slaves throughout the galaxy. Kalendorf wants to fan the flames of rebellion immediately, before the Daleks take over any more civilizations – and his fears are well-founded, for Earth has now surrendered to the Dalek advance. As the latest remnants of the Space Security Force rally for one last strike against the Daleks, their last frontal attack before resorting to guerilla warfare, Alby discovers that the decision of whether or not Suz is to live has been taken out of his hands.

Project Infinity

Dalek Empire: Project InfinityThe war against the Daleks rages on, but Alby Brook doesn’t give a damn – he’s deep in mourning for the woman he loved, and deeply drunk. But when he and Kalendorf discover that Suz left her knowledge of the Daleks’ plans behind for them, there’s new hope for the human resistance. But what Kalendorf and Alby don’t realize until it’s too late is that the Daleks have planted their servants deep within the ranks of the resistance, relaying vital tactical information back to their masters. One captured Dalek servant provides the freedom fighters with a way to listen in on the Dalek communications network, and the terrifying truth of Project Infinity comes to light. A desperate race ensues between the resistance forces and the mighty fleets of the Daleks, and the prize is universal peace…or universal domination.

Dalek War Chapter I

Dalek War Chapter IThe war between the Daleks who have overrun Earth’s solar system and the Daleks from an alternate dimension has not gone well. Kalendorf has taken a position at the head of the combined human/alternate-Dalek fleet, fighting for the liberation of the galaxy. Alby Brook has sought isolation and oblivion, choosing to stay away from the main action as he mourns the fate of Suz Mendes. Suz is also the subject of an intensive search by the Daleks. And Mirana seems to have found her before the Daleks can – but in so doing has delayed a rendezvous with Alby, leaving him in a potentially precarious situation. But what has happened to Suz in the meantime? Is she still dedicated to the resistance…or is she in the thrall of the Daleks?

Dalek War Chapter II

Dalek War Chapter IIMirana, operating in total secrecy, has recovered Suz, rescuing her from the burial in a collapsing star that has been ordained by the alternate universe Daleks for all humans subjected to the Dalek conversion process. Mirana and Kalendorf have discovered a horrifying secret – to avoid capture by the alternate universe Daleks, the Dalek Emperor forced its consciousness into Suz’s mind – a cohabitation she’s unaware of until Mirana tells her. Alby’s ship finally shows up for the rendezvous, but it has been commandeered by Daleks, and Alby and a refugee named Morli are hostages. The Daleks storm Mirana’s ship, taking command swiftly, but they refrain from their usual ruthlessness when Suz threatens to kill herself (which would also destroy the Emperor). At Earth’s solar system, Kalendorf’s Alliance fleet succeeds in tearing down the Daleks’ defenses, but at a high cost. Once in the solar system itself, Kalendorf and his alternate Dalek allies make startling discoveries, not the least of which is that the Daleks have terraformed Jupiter into a massive, human-habitable world by brute force. And in a Dalek laboratory, Suz’s mind is being turned inside-out, as the Daleks try to subjugate her personality permanently to bring the Emperor’s consciousness to the surface.

Dalek War Chapter III

Dalek War Chapter IIISuz slowly recovers from her Dalek-inflicted ordeal, which reveals that she is indeed in possession of the Emperor Dalek’s consciousness. In Earth’s solar system, Kalendorf’s crew explores the terraformed Jupiter with disastrous results, and the Mentor – the leader of the alternate universe Daleks – strips him of his command. When his ship is attacked, Kalendorf takes advantage of the confusion to escape, and makes a beeline for Mirana’s ship, which is also returning to the solar system under Dalek control. When he reaches the ship and is reunited with Suz, Alby begins to suspect the same thing of which the Mentor has accused Kalendorf: the leader of the rebellion has switched sides.

Dalek War Chapter IV

Dalek War Chapter IVHundreds of years after the Great Catastrophe that reduced many of the galaxy’s civilizations to rubble, Galactic Union agent Sy Tarkov seeks the expertise of Saloran Hardew, a researcher who has a theory that the Catastrophe was caused by one man named Kalendorf. She tells Tarkov of Kalendorf’s seeming betrayal of his own friends and allies, and how Kalendorf even handed Susan Mendes over to the Daleks he had pledged his life to fight, all in a cunning scheme to infiltrate the Daleks’ command network. And she tells Tarkov that, despite Kalendorf’s apparent defeat of the Daleks centuries ago, there are signs that they’re about to return – and this time the decimated galaxy isn’t ready to repel them.

The Exterminators

Dalek Empire III: The ExterminatorsA virus called NFS – Neurotransmitter Failure Syndrome – has swept the galaxy, laying entire populations to waste. Siy Tarkov, after discovering evidence of an impending Dalek invasion, fell victim to NFS after leaving Velyshaa and placed himself in suspended animation after helplessly watching the rest of his crew die. His desperate distress signal, warning of the Dalek approach, has gone undetected…except by a mysterious man named Selestru, who hires a space traveler named Galanar to find Tarkov’s drifting ship and bring Tarkov back. Selestru wants to know more about the Daleks, and he wants to know about the planet Velyshaa, which has fallen off of the galactic star charts and into the realm of myth.

On a jungle world of Graxis Major, the planet’s natural evolution is monitored by the peaceful Graxis Wardens; led by Commander Frey Saxton, the Wardens set up their observation posts only where no indigenous life exists. But just as the Wardens await the arrival of a new recruit, something else lands on Graxis Major. And when the first Wardens go out to investigate the unexpected landing, those scouts begin dying violently. Commander Saxton asks the Confederation of Border Worlds, the government closest to Graxis Major, for assistance, but when the Confederation’s representative arrives, he has unexpected passengers on his ship. And a couple of Wardens who have barely survived an attack recognize the new arrivals as Daleks.

Notes: The third “season” of Dalek Empire audios marked one of David Tennant’s final performances from Big Finish Productions; later in 2004, he starred in the miniseries Casanova produced by Russell T. Davies, whose new series of Doctor Who began in 2005; not long after the new series began, Christopher Eccleston announced he was giving up the role of the ninth Doctor, and Tennant was named as the tenth Doctor not long afterward, making his first appearance in Eccleston’s final episode, The Parting Of The Ways (which, coincidentally, also featured the Daleks as voiced by Nicholas Briggs). Tennant’s co-star, William Gaunt, also appeared with the Daleks on television, guest starring as the mercenary Orcini in the Colin Baker adventure Revelation Of The Daleks in 1985.

The Healers

Dalek Empire III: The HealersGalanar, traveling incognito as a doctor, backtracks Siy Tarkov’s two-decade journey, and decides to investigate the planet Skelanis, where “the Healers” are rumored to be fighting the NFS plague. On Graxis Major, when one of Commander Saxton’s crew refuses to obey a Dalek order, the Daleks show their true colors by exterminating him on the spot. Saxton and the surviving Wardens are rounded up and imprisoned, but Saxton stubbornly insists on formulating an escape plan. Without realizing it, Galanar is being spirited away to Skelanis VIII, which the Daleks have “geoformed” and turned into a massive medical facility. Having only heard Tarkov’s word that the Daleks are a force for evil, Galanar wonders if the Daleks – known here as the healers – are as bad as their reputation. And as Selestru continues to demand more information from him, Tarkov wonders precisely who his rescuer and benefactor is.

The Survivors

Dalek Empire III: The SurvivorsSelestru takes Tarkov to meet with the leaders of the Galactic Council, warning them of the imminent threat posed by the Daleks, but the warning is dismissed as unfounded hysteria. Selestru’s case isn’t helped by the fact that he hasn’t received any new information from Galanar. Desperate to bring new facts about the Daleks to light, Selestru sends Tarkov and a woman who claims to be his daughter on another intelligence gathering mission. But the chairman of the Council confronts Selestru with proof that the woman with Tarkov may not be who Selestru thinks she is. And when he breaks cover in the heart of the Dalek base on Skelanis VIII, Galanar is captured and brought before the Dalek Supreme, who says that Galanar isn’t who he thinks he is, either.

Dalek Empire III: The DemonsGalanar is told that he is a creation of the alternate Daleks who emerged from the Project Infinity dimensional rift two millennia ago. Genetically engineered to have abilities beyond normal humans, Galanar is one of the only experiments to survive. And it turns out that someone else on Skelanis VIII is another one of the surviving experiments, a woman named Elaria. Galanar also learns that the Daleks are trying to find the planet Velyshaa. With Elaria’s help, Galanar frees Tarkov – posing as a patient in the Daleks’ treatment center, and the only man alive who has been to Velyshaa and knows how to go back – and together they launch a desperate escape attempt.

The Warriors

Dalek Empire III: The WarriorsCommander Frey Saxton leads a charge against the Daleks, with hundreds of Graxis Wardens as her army and an armed but battered freighter at her disposal. During the attack on Skelanis VIII, Frey’s crew rescues Galanar, Elaria, and Tarkov from a waiting Dalek force. Once aboard Frey’s ship, however, Tarkov turns against his rescuers, believing that they work for the Daleks, until Frey manages to smooth things over and Tarkov agrees to lead the Graxis Wardens to Velyshaa. There, he believes, they will find the final telepathic imprint left by a man called Kalendorf who fought in the last great war against the Daleks, though what information he might have left behind 2,000 years ago is anybody’s guess. Something else that no one can even begin to guess at is the true nature of the cure that the Daleks are offering to the plague sweeping the galaxy.

Dalek Empire III: The FutureGalanar, Tarkov and Frey’s crew are finally en route to Velyshaa, only someone has betrayed them to the Daleks, who will soon follow. The source of the plague is discovered to have been the Daleks all along, only their cure is merely a way to mutate the victims into a new army of Daleks. The Graxis Wardens find the evidence they need on Velyshaa to warn the Galactic Union of the Daleks’ plan, only their ship is destroyed before they can leave with that evidence. The human race may finally have the means to destroy the Daleks, only they’ll have to become equally ruthless – and perhaps, in the end, as inhuman as the Daleks themselves.

Dalek Empire IV: The Fearless – Part 1

Dalek Empire IV: The FearlessOn the backwater planet of Talis Minor, Salus Kade has a decent life; he helps to bring home the food that feeds his people, he has a wife and daughter – and he wants absolutely nothing to do with the war raging between the Earth Alliance and the Dalek Empire. When he finds Earth soldiers holding a recruitment drive in the middle of his home town, he’s not pleased, and he’s not afraid of them until he discovers that the “recruiting” is just for show and it’s actually a forced conscription drive. Even as he rallies his own people around him by denouncing the Earth Alliance’s tyranny, the Daleks themselves arrive – and a catastrophic attack helps to change Kade’s mind. He enlists, along with many other men from his community, and ends up leading a battallion of Earth and allied soldiers in the Alliance’s newest gear: a sealed, self-contained armored spacesuit which is practically its own interstellar vehicle and weapons platform built around one man. Designed specifically to combat the Daleks, these suits are worn only by the Earth Alliance’s elite troopers, code named the Fearless. But Kade’s latest mission into the teeth of the Dalek war machine is enough to strike at least a little fear into his heart…

Return Of The Daleks

Doctor Who: Return Of The DaleksThe TARDIS arrives at the height of an alien world’s occupation by the Dalek Empire. Susan Mendes is there as well, serving as the Daleks’ “Angel of Mercy,” urging local populations on subjugated worlds to cooperate in order to live (and perhaps fight another day). But the locals here know all about the Daleks – this is far from their first encounter with them. Even with the Doctor and the rebellious Kalendorf working side-by-side, it may not be enough to stop the Daleks’ audacious schemes as they enslave the planet’s citizens and begin a desperate dig beneath the surface for an objective they refuse to name. The locals also have a history with the Doctor, as it was he – in a different incarnation – who helped them begin the fight against the Daleks…when their world was known as Spiridon.
