Sil's superior, Kiv, replaced him and negotiated fairer prices for Zyton-7 (6V).
GALAXY FOUR Location of the doomed planet upon which the Drahvin-Rill confrontation occurred (T).
GALAXY FIVE Militaristic space power located in a neighboring galaxy. During the 38th Century, Galaxy Five went to war with the Federation. It used Azaxyr and Eckersley to try to take over the trisilicate mines of Peladon. When they failed, it was forced to sue for peace (YYY). Later, Galaxy Five's self-proclaimed Master, Zephon, allied himself with the Daleks to attack the Solar System, but was killed by them (V). Presumably, Galaxy Five's power was then totally crushed by the Federation.
GALLEIA Queen of Atlantis The Master charmed her into overthrewing King Dalios. When she learned that the Renegade Time Lord had caused Dalios' death, she turned against him, but too late. In spite of the Third Doctor's actions, the Master used the Kronos Crystal to summon the Kronavore, who destroyed Atlantis. Galleia died (OOO).
GALLIFREY Homeplanet of Time Lords. It was located in the constellation of Kasterborus, 29,000 light
years away from Earth. Gallifrey was the location of the Trial of the Second Doctor, and was briefly invaded
by the War Lords (ZZ). Later, it was almost destroyed during the Omega crisis, but was saved by the Three
Doctors (RRR). It was threatened by the Master when he almost released the Eye of Harmony (4P). It
was then invaded by the Vardans and the Sontarans (4Z). In both cases, Gallifrey was saved by the Fourth
Doctor. The Fifth Doctor was tried on Gallifrey when Omega threatened to take over his body (6E). Finally,
Borusa brought the Five Doctors to Gallifrey's Death Zone to help him unlock the secret of the Tomb of Rassilon
Gallifrey was protected by impenetrable force fields known as transduction barriers. It was the location of the Capitol, the Time Lords' seat of power. A great deal of the surface of the planet was barren and wild, and inhabited by the Shobogans (or Outsiders) (4Z). The Death Zone was a forbidden area, protected by force fields, at the center of which was the Tomb of Rassilon, known as the Dark Tower (6K). The Third Doctor once mentioned that he lived on a mountainside in South Gallifrey (OOO). (The name of Gallifrey was first mentioned by the Third Doctor when he was interrogated by Linx (UUU).)

GASES Mankind used poison gases during World War I (ZZ). Poison gases were used as natural
weapons by the parasitic Weed (which fed on natural gas) (RR), and by the alien Vervoids (7C). Both were
vulnerable to pure oxygen. The Alzarians also used pure oxygen to drive the Marshmen away (5R).
Oxygen (or, more accurately, the mixture of oxygen and azote called air) was one of the commodities necessary for the preservation of human life under water (GG, 6L), in space (V), on airless worlds such as Earth's Moon (HH, QQQ), and on worlds with other types of atmospheres such as Titan (4T). The Sunmakers sold air to the Pluto colony and used a pacifying gas called PCM to maintain their domination. They also used a stun gas called Balarium (4W). The Moroks used a paralyzing gas named Zaphra (Q). The Terileptils breathed a mixture of air and a gas named Soliton (5X). The Marshal wanted to alter Solos' atmosphere to make it habitable by humans (NNN). Vorum gas was a sleeping gas used to protect Space Station J7's computer (6W).
The First Doctor used a gas jet and a match to get rid of Forester (J). The Fourth Doctor released helium in the Sandminer's atmosphere to trick the Robots of Death (4R). The Fifth Doctor used hexachromite to destroy the Silurians and Sea Devils who had taken over Sea Base Four (6L).
Planets Karn and Sarn both generated a volcanic gas which had, under certain local conditions, the power to extend life. On Sarn, it was called the Sacred Flame (4K) and on Sarn the Numismaton Flame (6Q). An unidentified green gas was part of the process leading to the creation of the Krargs (5M). On Alzarius, periodic orbital shifts released non-toxic subterranean gases which boosted evolution (5R).
GASTROPODS Half-humanoid, half-slug creatures, once considered mythical on Jaconda. They destroyed most of the planet. Their leader, Mestor, took over and planned to throw a planet into Jaconda's sun to spread his eggs throughout the universe. He was defeated by the Sixth Doctor and Azmael (6S).

GEL CREATURES Omega's mindless agents. He used them to attack the Three Doctors (RRR).
GENERATION STARSHIPS Man used generation starships for interstellar travel before the discovery of faster than light (or warp) propulsion. The Ark (X) and Terra Nova (4C) could be considered Generation Starships. Also see CRYOGENICS and SUSPENDED ANIMATION.
GENETIC ENGINEERING Dastari had technically augmented the androgum Chessene, without changing her savage nature (6W). The Vervoids were genetically engineered by Prof Lasky (7C). Other master geneticists included the Rani (q.v.) and Davros (q.v.). Also see CLONES.
GENOCIDE The destruction of an entire species. The Daleks (q.v.) were guilty of attempted genocide.
However, no matter what blows the Doctor dealt to the Daleks, he was never able (or willing) to completely eradicate
them (LL, 4E, 7H). Other aliens who were guilty of attempted genocide included: the Cybermen (q.v.), the
Dominators (TT), the Krotons (WW), the Ice Warriors (XX), Axos (GGG), Sutekh (4G), the Kraals (4J), the Krynoids

of Urbanka (5W), the Terileptils (5X) and Mestor (6S). The Silurians tried to cause the human race to exterminate
itself (6L). The Time Lords almost destroyed the human race when they moved Earth through space and renamed
it Ravolox (7A-7C).
A number of human villains almost caused the destruction of mankind: Forester (J), Prof. Zaroff (GG), Prof. Stahlman (DDD), Sir Charles Grover (WWW) and The Scientific Reform Society (4A). The Master was responsible for the annihilation of many planets, including Traken, when he destroyed Logopolis (5V).
The Sixth Doctor was accused of genocide by the Valeyard -- a criminal offense under Article 7 of Gallifreyan law -- for having destroyed the Vervoids (7C). The human Empire almost committed genocide on races such as the Solonians (NNN) or the Wirrn (4C). The Kastrians committed racial suicide rather than face Eldrad's return (4N).

Their goal was to steal the secrets previously stolen from the Time Lords' Matrix by the Andromedan Sleepers. Glitz was sentenced to death by Katryca. After Dibber destroyed the Maglem converter, Glitz conned Drathro into giving him the tape containing the Sleepers' secrets. But the tape was later destroyed, along with Drathro, when the Sixth Doctor shut down the energy systems to prevent a black light explosion (7A). Then, the Master sent Glitz, as well as Mel, to the Trial of the Doctor to help the Time Lord expose the Valeyard's secret identity. The Valeyard fled into the Matrix, the Doctor hot in pursuit. Glitz followed him and recovered the Sleepers secrets from the Valeyard for the Master. However, the Valeyard had tricked him, giving him a Limbo Atrophier instead. Glitz and the Master became trapped in the Matrix (7C). Glitz was later stranded on Iceworld, because he owed money to Kane, to whom he had already sold the crew of his ship, the Nosferatu. Kane manipulated him and the Seventh Doctor into looking for the Dragonfire. After Kane's suicide, Glitz remained in charge of Iceworld (now a spaceship rechristened Nosferatu II), and left with Mel (7G).
GLOBAL CHEMICALS Multinational corporation which owned and operated the Llanfairfach Refinery. It was pumping chemical waste into the local mines, which eventually was the cause of the Green Death and its deadly swarm of giant maggots.

GRANT Corporal in the British army squadron sent to fight the Daleks who had invaded the Coal Hill area in 1963 (7H).
GRAVIS Leader of the Tractators. He functioned like a Queen Bee. Without his guiding intelligence, the Tractators were mindless burrowers. The Gravis had tremendous powers of gravity control. He had secretly drawn human colonists to Frontios because he needed to use their bodies and minds to power his excavating machines. With these, he planned to turn Frontios into a hollow spaceship. The Gravis was susceptible to flattery, and his desire for the TARDIS enabled the Fifth Doctor to cut him off from the other Tractators and render them helpless. The Doctor then abandoned the Gravis on Kolkokron (6N).
GRAVITRON A gravity-controlling machine located on the Moonbase, which helped control Earth's weather (via the tides). In 2070 AD, it became the object of a Cyberman attack. The Second Doctor used the gravitron to send the Cybermen and their ship hurtling off in space (HH).

GREAT CRYSTAL (OF THE MARA) Powerful stone created over eight hundred years ago by the Manussans. Its perfect molecular structure was attuned to the exact wavelength of the human mind. It had been designed by molecular engineering in a zero-gravity environment. The Crystal absorbed the evil within the Manussans' minds, amplified it, and created the Mara. When Tegan brought the Mara back to Manussa eight hundred years later, the Crystal was in Ambril's custodianship. The Mara manipulated Lon into persuading Ambril to let him use it during the ceremony, when it planned to recreate itself. It was eventually thwarted by the Fifth Doctor, who seized the Crystal and broke the spell (6D). Also see CRYSTALS.

GREAT INTELLIGENCE Entity from another dimension, which was exiled into ours, and condemned to hover between
the stars without physical substance. It made contact with Padmasambhava's mind during one of the Lama's
astral journeys, and promised him knowledge and long life. The Great Intelligence eventually took over the
Lama's mind. It planned to reincorporate itself and conquer Earth, when its gelatinous substance flowed through
a pyramid gateway. In spite of its robot Yeti, which were controlled through telepathic, silver spheres,
the Intelligence's plan was thwarted by the Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria and Prof. Travers in the mid-1930s.
The entity was banished when the Doctor held it in check mentally, while Jamie and Thomni smashed its pyramid (NN).
Thirty years later, Prof. Travers reactivated a robot Yeti's silver sphere, which led the Intelligence to launch a new attack, this time in the London Underground, using Yetis and web guns. It was again opposed by the Second Doctor, with the help of Prof. Travers, Jamie, Victoria and Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart. The Intelligence plotted to drain the Doctor's mind, but the Doctor secretly reversed the polarities of the device, and would have turned the tables on his enemy if Jamie had not unwittingly wrenched the device from the Doctor's head at the last minute, thereby releasing the evil entity (QQ).
GREAT JOURNEY OF LIFE Name given by the Nimon to their travel from planet to planet (5L).
GREAT KEY (OF RASSILON) Another name for the Rod of Rassilon (4P, 4Z). Not to be confused with the Key of Rassilon (4Z, 7C).

They fed him with the blood of the human colonists and their descendents for a thousand years, planning for the Time of Arising, when he would swarm back into normal space. The Great Vampire's plans were thwarted by the Fourth Doctor, who used one of the Hydrax scout ships like a stake to kill him (5P).

Bigon was a Greek philosopher kidnapped by the Urbankans, probably circa 519 BC (5W). Delos was a Greek slave who befriended Ian aboard a Roman galley (M). One of the Eternals wore the guise of Critas, the captain of a Greek galley (6H). The Fifth Doctor and Turlough met Peri on a Greek Island, near which a Trion ship had crashed (6Q).
GREEL, MAGNUS 51st Century Australian dictator and scientist whose quest for eternal life led him to devise the flawed time travel method known as the Zigma Experiment. He was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, and was dubbed the Butcher of Brisbane. Greel created the Peking Homunculus in order to assassinate the Icelandic Alliance Commissioner, an action which set off World War Six and helped him and other dictators take over the Earth as the Supreme Alliance. Greel became the Alliance's infamous Minister of Justice. After the Alliance was overthrown at the Battle of Reykjavik, Greel and the Homunculus escaped to 19th Century China in the Zygma Time Cabinet. But his metabolism was destroyed by temporal distortion. Greel became horribly disfigured, and needed to absorb other humans' life essences in order to survive. He was found by a Chinese peasant, Li H'Sen Chang, who took him to be the god Weng-Chiang. While Greel was recovering, his Time Cabinet was seized by the Chinese Emperor T'ungchi, and eventually ended up in London in Prof. Litefoot's hands. Greel and his worshippers, the Tong of the Black Scorpion, and the Homunculus, travelled to England to recover the Cabinet. But their efforts were thwarted by the Fourth Doctor, Leela, Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago. After discarding Chang, Greel was eventually struck down by the Homunculus's laser fire and died of cellular collapse (4S).
