Dalek War (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
The "Dalek Wars" were the series of conflicts that involved forces of the universe, primarily humans, battling the Daleks. These included the invasion of Earth in the 22nd century, also known as the First Dalek War, (PROSE: Prelude Deceit) the Human-Draconian War in 2520, the Second Dalek War, (TV: Frontier in Space, Planet of the Daleks) and the Third Dalek War which took place prior to Steven Taylor's time, centuries prior to 4000. (PROSE: Mission to the Unknown) These conflicts put a stop to Earth's expansionist era. (PROSE: The Chase)
From the perspective of humanity, the Daleks suddenly disappeared "thousands of years" prior to the Battle of the Game Station in 200,100. As recalled by Jack Harkness, a former Time Agent from the 51st century, the Daleks vanished from time and space at a point when they were the "greatest threat in the universe." As the Ninth Doctor recalled, they had left to fight the Last Great Time War against the Time Lords. (TV: The Parting of the Ways)
