IRC there was one episode where the Doctor mentions changing the "desktop theme" to "coral". I guess this refers to the constantly changing control room appearance, which appears to be configurable at the user's whim.
That was from Time Crash the Comedy Relief short and the fifth Doctor was refereing it being like a wallpaper theme. Since as we later learn the TARDIS has all of the console room in storage past, present and future.

Re: Most Powerful Sci-Fi Civilization

In reference to cosmocrats and the I said, I find it bit pointless to comment on which super race is MORE omnipotent! However, in the Culture series, I think the Q are more advanced than the still technological Culture, though possibly on par with some of the species that have sublimed.

^ We might get a bit of a look at this in the latest Culture novel, The Hydrogen Sonata, which I haven't had a chance to read yet, but involves a civilisation in the last few weeks before it Sublimes.
