"Project Indigo can also be believed to be the predecessor of the Vortex Manipulator, as both devices share the same teleport basecode"

This is more likely to be a reflection of both technologies utilising the same basic physical law of the universe to function, as by the 30th Century -- the assumed home time of the Time Agency -- no one would know anything about Indigo and the technology of the Vortex Manipulator would have been reinvented from scratch or acquired from an alien species, so doesn't really belong in the article.

Conjecture? Edit

Should there even be a "Conjecture" section here? It seems like the only content there is complete speculation. Apart from none of the conclusions being substantiated within the show, this section could also easily grow very large as others add contradictory yet equally speculative thoughts.

I've removed the whole conjecture section from the main page, preserved below is what was removed. --Tangerineduel / talk 13:26, January 6, 2013 (UTC)
== Conjecture ==
The Dalek massacre of [[UNIT]] personnel around the globe likely resulted in the deaths of Project Indigo's design teams and provided private commercial interests with the window of opportunity to steal the contents of the organisation's extant storage facilities. As a result, the development of stand-alone teleport devices seems to have ceased with attention being turned to close-ended [[transmat]] technology that would eventually culminate in the [[T-Mat]] ([[TV]]: ''[[The Seeds of Death]]'') and its successor, the [[Interstitial Mass Transit System]] ([[PROSE]]: ''[[Transit]]'').

Codes from Project Indigo were all that was required to reactivate the teleportation function on [[Jack Harkness]]'s [[Time Agency wrist strap]]. This implies not only that the teleportation technology of the wrist strip, or in the housed [[Time Agency]] [[vortex manipulator]], could be descended from Project Indigo, but more significantly, that the Doctor did not use his [[sonic screwdriver]] to physically damage the vortex manipulator when he disabled the teleport function, but had simply erased certain control codes from its memory.
