After being contacted by an elderly Madame Karabraxos, the Doctor set out to rescue the Teller at her request. As part of his plan, the Doctor posed as "the Architect" and placed this spaceship in orbit over the Bank of Karabraxos as a method of escape. The Doctor also left his TARDIS onboard.
During the mission, Saibra and Psi used what they believed were atomic shredders but were in fact teleporters that sent them to the ship where they found the TARDIS. Saibra and Psi returned to the bank in time to aid the Doctor and Clara Oswald in reaching the Private Vault. Once they succeeded in rescuing the Teller and his mate, the group used the teleporters to escape to the ship before the bank was destroyed by a solar storm. (TV: Time Heist)
