Lieutenant Atlanta Shore is the Marineville Controller. She was born on May 21th 2042 in the state of California. Atlanta is the daughter of WASP Commander Sam Shore and his wife Elaine. Having been a resident of the World Navy's Marineville Base since the age of 6 and constantly exposed to naval life, she naturally picked up an interest in the sea. She attended school at Marineville and picked up numerous qualifications there. She then went on to the World Naval Academy to train for the submarine service.

Unfortunately, Atlanta Shore was forced to leave the academy early after the untimely death of her mother in 2058. She returned to Marineville to tend to her father who at this time was a top World Navy aquanaut. Atlanta conti­nued her studies at night and by correspondence course. Eventually she was able to achieve World Navy adminis­trative qualifications in this manner.

Disaster struck the Shore household a second time in 2060 when her father lost the use of both legs during an undersea battle with unknown forces. Though both members of the family continued to remain in the World Navy, Atlanta then assumed the additional burden of becoming her father's nurse.

Both Atlanta Shore and her father transferred over to the World Aquanaut Security Patrol when it formed in 2062. Indeed, her father was promoted to Aquanaut Commander and put in charge of the now WASP Marineville Base. In 2063 Atlanta Shore was promoted to Lieutenant and appointed Marineville Base Controller.

Atlanta Shore likes to play the piano and cook. She also enjoys taking scientific courses, particularly on under­water subjects. She is romantically involved with Troy Tempest and hopes to eventually marry him. She also enjoys spending time with George Sheridan and Marina.

Lois Maxwell (14 February 1927 — 29 September 2007) was a Canadian actress, mainly known for her portrayal of Miss Moneypenny in the first fourteen James Bond films.

Maxwell began her film career in the late 1940s, and won a Golden Globe Award for the New Actress of the Year for her performance in That Hagen Girl (1947). Following a number of small film roles, Maxwell grew dissatisfied and travelled to Italy where she worked in films from 1951 until 1955, and following her marriage, she moved to the United Kingdom where she appeared in several television productions.

She was the first actress to play the role of Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond film series, playing the character from Dr. No in 1962 until her final performance of the character in the 1985 film A View to a Kill.

As Maxwell's career declined, she lived in Canada, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, until she was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2001. She moved to Perth, Western Australia where she lived with her son until her death in 2007, at the age of eighty.
