Strategists were individuals who devised strategy. The Time Lord Danna was one of the finest military strategists in Gallifreyan history. (AUDIO: Soldier Obscura) Cardinal Ollistra was regraded as a Time Lord strategist during the Last Great Time War. (AUDIO: The Eternity Cage)

The Dalek Prime Strategist (COMIC: Defender of the Daleks)

In the Dalek Restoration Empire, an elite unit was the Dalek Prime Strategist who served as an advisor to the Emperor of the Restoration. (COMIC: Defender of the Daleks) It claimed that it, and all Strategist Daleks, would take operational command of a mission if it were to become compromised. (AUDIO: Mutually Assured Destruction)

During the Last Great Time War, the Dalek Empire created the Dalek Time Strategists to coordinate their forces in a temporal conflict. (AUDIO: The Monster of Montmartre) One of them rose to become second-in-command of the empire, becoming a rival to the War Doctor and gaining a reputation as an extremely dangerous Dalek. (AUDIO: The Eternity Cage)

Following the Time War, the Strategist Daleks of the New Dalek Paradigm were distinguished by their blue casings. (TV: Victory of the Daleks) While this model was initially mass-produced, (COMIC: The Only Good Dalek) it was retired in favour of returning to the casing style of the Time War, the Black Daleks subsequently being assigned as the new strategists. (COMIC: The Dalek Project)
