Film biography

On-board Drax's Space Station, James Bond and Dr. Holly Goodhead manage to disable the station's radar jamming system; leading to the unauthorized space structure becoming visible to both the Americans and Soviets for the first time. The United States dispatches a platoon of Marines in a space shuttle, which blasts off from Vandenberg Air Force Base. Colonel Scott was the commanding officer of the group and leads his men in their attempt to storm the station. After a sustained firefight with Drax's armed forces around and inside the station, it begins to lose structural stability and violently falls apart. Their mission accomplished, the Marines and Colonel Scott retreat back to the relative safety of the shuttle and depart.
