I'm imagining a meta version of this, with Obi-wan piloting a KINO through a turbolift wardrobe.

An essential part of every emergency kit, along with water, protein bars, and duct tape.

"Why buy one when you can have two for twice the price?" An excellent philosophy, especially when applied to socks and pears. ALT: The probes line will be cut and it will spend 60 years in Narnia, by which time it will have become sentient and defeated the white witch, but gone slightly crazy from being cooped up in a crumbly palace on a ocean cliff.

Would it come out of the wardrobe on the other side (as it does have transformative properties, hence them regressing in age when they returned) as Aslan?
Stargate has an interesting mix of hard, soft, and "sufficiently advanced" sci-fi. I would expect time in Narnia to slow down to our time rate as long as the doorway is open. The wire should ensure this.
However, here you're dealing with an implicitly Christian fantasy by an explicitly Christian author. The prequel, The Magician's Nephew
, revealed reality to be a multiverse, over which one God reigns, one Logos incarnates in each universe, and one Spirit moves the hearts of all sentient beings to love each other.
In other words, a probe with "import Aslan" just asked Jesus into its heart.
You mean its power supply. And I'm going to pull a statistic out of a hair follicle and say that 75% of his readers thought "Stargate!" upon seeing the rover.
