How we doing, Richard?

We should pass

over the English coast

15 minutes

ahead of time, sir.

Well, with this

load on our back,

that's good going.

Just trust the RAF, sir.

What the hell is that?

The shuttle ignition.


And what happened

to the Moonraker?

Good God.

Yes, yes, of course, Minister.

Right away.

Moneypenny, is 007 back

from that African job?

He's on his last leg, sir.

Any higher, Mr. Bond,

my ears will pop.

I don't think I'm ever going

to fly with anyone else.

You're so right, Mr. Bond.

This is where we

leave you, Mr. Bond.

A little premature, isn't it?

Enjoy your flight.






Where are you?

Why do you hide?

Where is that moonlight trail

That leads to your side?

Just like the Moonraker goes

In search of his dream of gold

I search for love

For someone to have and hold

I've seen your smile

In a thousand dreams

Felt your touch

And it always seems

You love me

Where are you?

When will we meet?

Take my unfinished life

And make it complete

Just like the Moonraker knows

His dream will

come true someday

I know that you

Are only a kiss away

I've seen your smile

In a thousand dreams

Felt your touch

And it always seems

You love me

Good morning, Moneypenny.


But why are you so late?

I fell out of an airplane

without a parachute.


Who's in there?

Q and the Minister

of Defense.

You don't believe me,

do you?

And you should

go right in.

Yes, Moneypenny.

007. At last.

Good morning, sir.

I think you know

Frederick Gray,

Minister of Defense.


Minister. Q.


What do you know

about Moonraker?

What I read

in the newspaper, sir.

Then you'll know

that Moonraker,

the space shuttle,

was being flown over here

on loan from the Americans

on the back of a 747.

Yes, which crashed

somewhere in the Yukon,

aircraft and shuttle

totally destroyed,


That's the official version.

The truth is rather

more disturbing,007.

Look at this.

Now, that's

the scene of the crash.

Wreckage strewn

over a large area.

That's all that's

left of the fuselage.

We've been through it

with a fine-toothed comb,

but there's no sign

of Moonraker, not a trace.

Are you suggesting

the shuttle was

hijacked in midair?

That's for you

to find out,007.

The shuttles are

built in California

by Drax Industries.

Yes. We were responsible

for the safety of that

shuttle, Commander.

The United States government

is justifiably concerned.

I can imagine.

Then, California must

be the place to start.

I agree.

Don't make any mistakes,007.

The situation is critical.

We've got to

find that shuttle.

Yes, sir.

If that's all,


Ah, just a minute,007.

I've got something

for you.

Roll up your

right sleeve, will you?

This is now being issued

as standard equipment.

Strap it on your wrist.

It's activated

by nerve impulses

from the wrist muscles.

Like this?

Oh, thank you,007.

Be careful, will you?

Yes, Q.

Ten darts, five blue-tipped

with armor piercing heads,

five red-tipped,

cyanide coated,

causing death in 30 seconds.

Very novel, Q.

You must get them

in the stores for Christmas.

Good morning, gentlemen.


Welcome to California,

Mr. Bond.

I like it already.

My name is Corinne Dufour.

Oh, and you're going to be

showing me around, are you,


No. I'm just a humble pilot

in the service of

the Drax Corporation.

This is the Drax estate now.
