Moonraker Station - Profile Image

Drax's space station with several docked shuttles, as seen in Moonraker (1979).

Drax's space station is an enormous top-secret space station (over 200 meters in diameter) constructed by Drax Industries. Billionaire industrialist Hugo Drax planned to use the station as a space colony for his 'master race', while the remainder of Earth's population would be intentionally destroyed with a deadly nerve toxin. Once the toxic contamination had cleared, Drax's 'perfect physical specimens' would return to Earth and repopulate the planet. The station appeared in the 1979 film Moonraker and the 2012 video-game 007 Legends.

Film appearance

The space station first appears in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker, where it is discovered by the protagonists after they stow away on one of Drax's Moonraker space-shuttles. Despite its enormous size, the station's existence is kept a secret via a radar jamming device, which James Bond and Holly Goodhead manage to sabotage. Now visible from Earth, an American shuttle is sent to investigate with two marine platoons under the command of Colonel Scott. Before Drax is able to destroy the shuttle using the station's laser weapon, 007 cuts out the colony's simulated gravity system and a space battle erupts outside between the opposing forces. As a result of the combat inside and outside, the station begins to lose integrity and eventually falls apart, exploding violently and destroying Drax's remaining nerve gas probes.

Video-games appearance

Moonraker Station (007 Legends) (2)

Drax's space station, as seen during the Moonraker level of 007 Legends.

Over thirty years later, the space station made a second appearance in the Moonraker-inspired levels of the 2012 video-game 007 Legends. Unlike its film counterpart, the space station is more heavily armed and has a more futuristic and symmetrical design. Roughly following the plot of the 1979 film, James Bond and Holly Goodhead infiltrate Drax's space station and sabotage the toxin-probe launch system. As with the film, the marines are sent to investigate and Drax attempts to destroy their shuttles with the station's numerous laser canons. After some subtle coaxing from 007, Jaws switches sides and the three shut down the colony's artificial gravity and assist the marines in destroying the station.
