** Before he orders her and Bond to be executed, Drax tells Holly [[FalseReassurance "Your desire to become America's first woman in space will shortly be fulfilled"]], which points itself to pre-1983, when Sally Ride became the first female American astronaut (the first ever female astronaut was Valentina Tereshkova of the Soviet Union in 1963). Let's just [[MST3KMantra forget that Holly had actually gotten into space]] already by that point.
** An inversion (though only at the time of its release): at the time ''Moonraker'' was made, NASA was intending to launch its first space shuttle in 1979, which would have made the film very timely. Unfortunately, NASA had to delay the launch for two years, rendering the film unexpectedly something that was before its time.
*** Even more so now that the Space Shuttle has been retired as of 2011; in this film it is headlined and touted as the pinnacle of human spaceflight, with none of its viable replacements yet ready to succeed it.

** James Mason was considered for the part of Drax, but turned it down. Michael Lonsdale was likely selected due to the movie's French financing (and he does sound somewhat like Mason).
