Moment Express Development Organization (モーメント・エクスプレス開発機構, Mōmento Ekusupuresu Kaihatsu Kikō), or Moment Express or simply M.E. for short, were a mysterious private manufacturing company in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
Duel Runner engine
Momentum Express have a partnership with Bolger & Company in the development of Duel Runner engines. Bolger & Company were commissioned by Moment Express to build an Ener-D engine. Moment Express receives financial support from the world to fund this.
Infinity is a large machine built by Moment Express. It accelerates Planetary Particles in order to cause dimension distortion and create wormholes. The wormholes can be used to transport matter. Moment Express aim to use this as a form of space travel, which will eliminate the need to send rockets into space.
Involvement with Iliaster
Yusei Fudo, Sherry LeBlanc and Bruno infiltrated the Moment Express building to find out more about their involvement with Iliaster. Sherry and Bruno managed to find a file about Iliaster after hacking into their computers. Sherry copied this onto a flash drive.
The Moment Express building has a hexagon-shaped surrounding wall. Inside is a large dome with several spikes jutting upwards.
The building is divided into different levels. Higher levels require access keys to get into. The access key is simply slid through a device to open the door.
The building has tight security. Various surveillance cameras are set up in the hallways. Facial recognition can be applied to people seen on the camera. Facial details are compared with those of people they have on file in order to identify them. Fingerprints can also be read and compared to people they have on file. This was used to identify Yusei Fudo and Sherry LeBlanc went they infiltrated the building, posing as employees of Bolger & Company.
A hanger containing dimension shuttles is located near Infinity. The shuttles can be transported to the platform above Infinity and will hover above the machine when the platforms are opened. The shuttle is used to contain the matter to be transported through wormholes.
There is a series of tubes, which are used to test Duel Runners.
Clark's office has a large monitor, which can split into four screens.
Moment Express phoned Lazar to inform him of the arrival of the Three Emperors of Iliaster. When Lazar told Yusei and his friends about this, he did not know who the company that phones him was, but knew how to find out. He took them to the Accel Simulator arcade game, where records of Sector Security were hidden, including who the company that phoned him was.
Yusei, Sherry and Bruno infiltrated the Moment Express headquarters posing as employees of Bolger & Company, Daniel, Eva and Timothy. They managed to learn about Infinity. While Yusei tested a Duel Runner in the tubes, Bruno and Sherry hacked into the computer system, but were unable to find information on Iliaster. They suspected that the information they needed was hidden away in a higher level of the building, so they snuck into Clark's office to steal his access card. Unbeknownst to them, Clark had already identified them through the security system. When Clark went to his office, Sherry and Bruno snuck out through a ventilation shaft, while Yusei faced Clark in a Concentration Duel to buy them time. While they Dueled, Bruno and Sherry managed to copy a file on Iliaster onto a flash drive. After the Duel, Clark revealed that he knew their identities and set off an alarm. Yusei caught up with Bruno and Sherry and tried to escape. They ended up hiding in a shuttle, which was part of a trap. The shuttle was locked and moved to Infinity to have them transported elsewhere.
