A Boeing 747 carrying a US space shuttle on loan to the UK crashes into the Atlantic Ocean. When the British examine the wreckage they can find no trace of the space craft and send agent James Bond to the shuttle’s manufacturers, Drax Industries, to investigate.
While visiting Drax’s estate several attempts are made on Bond’s life making Drax himself the number one suspect. Bond also meets Dr. Holly Goodhead, a NASA scientist who is also a CIA agent who is investigating Drax. Their investigations lead Bond to discover a plot to mass murder the world’s population so that Drax can repopulate the planet in his image.
The chase takes Bond all over the world – California, Brazil, the Amazon Jungle and finally, to Drax’s huge space-city over the Earth. Drax, meanwhile, has hired a old friend of Bond to take care of any problems – the steel-teethed killer Jaws.
