A Cardassian TARDIS?

I know it's accidental, but this Cardassian sauna (from DS9's "For the Cause") sure looks likes the top of a TARDIS console, doesn't it?

Who wouldn't want to travel time and space while taking a nice relaxing steam bath?

Personally, I like Capaldoc's library TARDIS, that'd be more my style. How about you? Would your console room be wall-to-wall TV screens? An anti-grav environment? A hot tub? Shelves upon shelves of My Little Pony memorabilia? Let us know in the comments.

It's not just the Cardassians:

I was going to jokingly respond with a TARDIS that's basically just a cosy bedroom: filled with spare pillows, armchairs, blankets, plushies and always at the right temperature to put you to sleep.
Thinking about it though, a TARDIS specifically made to help transport you to dream-like realms and subconscious dimensions? (kinda like that engine in one of the last episodes of Class)
Seems pretty neat to me.

Easiest way to get to the Land of Fiction and the Toymaker's realm, I'm sure!

Brilliant, the strange dimensional/dreamlike stories like Mind Robber and Toymaker are a favourite theme of mine!

Something interesting enough to note is that I have a very odd affinity for The Web Planet and In The Forest of The Night, neither stories I find particularly good on their own merits but that tap into that similar vein for me.
The Web Planet because it makes me feel like I'm falling asleep watching it, the blurred lens and the usually easy to overlook/accept production issues coming to the forefront create a surreal 'did that Zarbi just hit the camera or did I imagine that?' atmosphere. (Well, as well as the fact that I tend to almost fall asleep whenever I watch it. That helps too.)
Forest of the Night because it feels like I've actually fallen asleep and this is my subconscious trying to construct a Doctor Who episode that I'm watching.
A lot of faint praise there, but it's an angle that I can personally enjoy it from.

Oh, and let's throw the episode of The Chase with the Haunted House that The Doctor mistakes for some sort of abstract plane of human fears onto that pile as well, for what it counts.

I like The Web Planet for all sorts of reasons, some of them rooted in nostalgia.

Other dream-like stories include The Edge of Destruction, Carnival of Monsters, The Deadly Assassin, Warriors' Gate, Castrovalva, Kinda, Snakedance, The Ultimate Foe, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, Ghost Light, Forest of the Dead, Amy's Choice, Night Terrors, The God Complex, Last Christmas, and Extremis, to name but most.

My TARDIS would have all the round things...

I love the round things.

In my rpg it's a giant aquarium and each fish corresponds to a function of the tardis itself ...

Clever and strange, I love it.
