- "Hard to starboard!"
—Officer Moody yelling at the same time as William Murdoch to Robert Hichens. James Moody was Sixth Officer and the only junior officer of the ship to die in the disaster. He died at only 24 years old.
He first appeared as the officer admitting steerage passengers Jack Dawson and Fabrizio De Rossi on board the ship only moments before it departed Southampton. He was later seen in the wheelhouse when Murdoch ordered him "All Ahead Full". Moody was also the officer who answered the call from the crow's nest, asking, "What do you see?" Fleet replied, "Iceberg, right ahead!"
After the collision, Moody was ordered to write the time of collision to ship's log. Later, he appeared in the chart room near William Murdoch when Harold Bride told Edward Smith about RMS Carpathia. He is later seen when Caledon Hockley bribes Murdoch for access to a lifeboat. When Cal was furiously going through the Wheelhouse, Moody attempted to stop him only to be knocked to one side.
He was later seen with Murdoch, Wilde and crewmen as they attempt to fill Collapsible A. He was a witness to Murdoch's suicide. However, unlike Henry Wilde, he does not try to intervene. He was last seen as the water rushes up on to the last two boats next to Wilde, who screamed for the crew to cut the falls on Collapsible Lifeboat A.
