M, orders Bond to a health clinic outside London to get back into shape.. While there, Bond witnesses a mysterious nurse named Fatima Blush giving a sadomasochistic beating to a patient in a nearby room...Bond and Felix then attempt to board Largo's motor yacht, the Flying Saucer, in search of the missing nuclear warheads. Bond becomes trapped and is taken, with Domino, to Palmyra, Largo's base of operations in North Africa. Largo punishes Domino for betraying him by auctioning her off ...

"Khashoggi's Ship" was started by Mercury with all four of them contributing to the lyrics and music.. The song is about famous billionaire Adnan Khashoggi and a ship (the Nabila, now Kingdom 5KR) that he owned at the time and was one of the largest private yachts in the world..The yacht's latest name stems from the Prince's investment company, Kingdom Holding Company, his lucky number (5), and his children's initials ('K' and 'R')..The ship has a beam of 13.25 metres (43.5 ft), a draught of 4.72 metres (15.5 ft) and fuel capacity of 515,000 litres (136,000 gallons)...
After Khashoggi ran into financial problems, he sold the ship in 1988 to the Sultan of Brunei, who in turn sold it to Donald Trump for $29 million. Trump renamed her Trump Princess after retrofitting her..When Trump ran into financial problems, he sold it to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal for $40 million in 1991..When she was delivered she had five decks, a disco, a cinema with seats for 12 and 2 double beds, 11 opulent suites, a helipad on top (its smoke stacks are sloped outward to avoid interference with the helicopters), a pool with a water jet on top in front of the heliport, 2 Riva tenders, a crew of 48, a top speed of 20 knots, and cruising speed of 17.5 knots... course you somehow consider yourself outside the normal chain of command. But may I remind you that this is a Service..And when you're done showing off, you come back to work for me as Director-General of the Security Service..and what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career...
