Imperial-Renegade Dalek Civil War
Location: Skaro

The Imperial-Renegade Dalek Civil War was a civil war between two sides of Daleks - Davros's Imperials and the Dalek Supreme's Renegades.





The war began less than a day after the forces of the Supreme Dalek woke Davros from suspended animation.

Davros possessed a small injection device which could instantly convert both Humans and Daleks to his cause. He used this to build a small army of Daleks and Human replicant troopers, which he then pitted against the Supreme's forces. All of Davros' forces were destroyed, either by loyalist Daleks or the Movellan virus. (DW: Resurrection of the Daleks)

Davros escaped to the planet Necros where he began creating a new army of Daleks from human tissue. The Daleks led by the Supreme Dalek were alerted to Davros' presence by employees at Tranquil Repose. The Dalek Supreme's forces considered Davros a criminal, upon arrival a short engagement between Davros' and the Supreme Dalek's forces ensued. Following his capture Davros attempted to reveal the Doctor to the Daleks, but he was not recognised by the Supreme's forces (who had encountered his previous incarnation). Davros was taken to be transported to the Dalek homeworld of Skaro to stand trial. (DW: Revelation of the Daleks)

On route to Skaro the ship transporting Davros crashed on the planet Lethe. Davros was rescued and set himself up as 'Professor Vaso' altering the humans on the colony perceptions of him so they would not recognise him as the 'Great Healer'. He attempted to create a new machine a Juggernaut based on a Mechanoid design. Lethe's atmosphere prevented the Supreme Dalek retrieving Davros directly, its forces intercepted the Doctor's TARDIS forcing him to serve as an agent of the Daleks and stop Davros' researches and manipulations. The Doctor discovered two of Davros' Necros Daleks survived the crash, but were destroyed following Davros' final gambit on the colony and the Supreme Dalek's intervention. (BFA: The Juggernauts)

Following this event Davros was most likely retrieved by the Dalek Supreme's forces once more and returned to Skaro.

While on Skaro, the Doctor rescued Davros just before the Daleks carried out their sentence of death and spoke to him of his future destiny of Emperor Dalek. (DWM: Emperor of the Daleks, "...Up Above the Gods...") The Doctor then took Davros to Spiridon where he could lick his wounds and bide his time. The Doctor intended to lay groundwork for a Dalek civil war and spoke to Davros of his future destiny as Emperor Dalek.

When the grey and black faction (later known as the Renegades) led by the Supreme Dalek landed on Spiridon, with the the next incarnation of the Doctor, Davros set his faction of white and gold Daleks (later known as the Imperial Daleks) against them, along with a (or the) Special Weapons Dalek. The Supreme Dalek died. In the aftermath of the battle, Davros found his wheelchair damaged and suffered amnesia, remembering only his ambition to make himself the new Emperor. (DWM: Emperor of the Daleks)

The Renegades almost certainly did not use that term to refer to themselves.

Conclusion of hostilities

The war ended after a final battle on Earth in 1963. Davros's Imperial Daleks defeated the Renegades with the aid of the Special Weapons Dalek. Subsequently, and further pursuing the plan he had already developed, the Doctor destroyed the Imperials using the Hand of Omega. The Doctor convinced the last of the Renegades to destroy itself. (DW: Remembrance of the Daleks)

Following this encounter the Dalek Empire fell into a decline as Dalek forces were consolidated. (EDA: War of the Daleks)
