Alex Rider Wiki

Gabriel 7 was the rocket sent by Nikolei Drevin to destroy the Ark Angel space hotel in the novel Ark Angel.


Gabriel 7 was launched as Alex Rider attempted to inform the CIA agents stationed on an island near Flamingo Bay of Nikolei Drevin's plans for his space hotel and Washington D.C.

Drevin claimed it held supplies to aid the building of Ark Angel, but it was soon revealed that on board, a man named Kaspar (otherwise known as Magnus Payne) rode up with the initial launch. His job was to place the bomb he held in the Ark Angel space hotel and set the detonation timer.

As with most single launch rockets, Gabriel 7 was discarded after it reached the space station.
