Nous sommes à la fin du XVIe siècle et, seul la nuit dans son palais, William Shakespeare est assis à sa table de travail. La plume à la main, il paraît vouloir parfaire l'ouvrage qu'il est en train d'écrire (Hamlet), mais ne parvient apparemment pas à trouver les termes qui conviennent. Contempler la lune et flatter sa mappemonde de la main ne lui sont d'aucune aide. C'est de sa réflexion, qu'on voit se frayer à travers les circonvolutions de son cerveau, que naît son inspiration comme s'il était soudainement touché par la grâce divine, et comme ce fut, peut-être, également le cas pour d'autres génies de la littérature, de la science et des arts dont on voit défiler quelques noms : Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Léonard de Vinci, Dante Alighieri, Albert Einstein.

After the mysterious failure of the Discovery One mission to Jupiter in 2001, which resulted in the deaths of four astronauts and the disappearance of David Bowman, the fiasco was blamed on Dr. Heywood Floyd, who resigned his position as head of the National Council for Astronautics. While an international dispute causes tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union, both nations prepare space missions to determine what happened to the Discovery. Although the Soviet ship, the Leonov, will be ready before the American spacecraft Discovery Two, the Soviets need American astronauts to help board the Discovery and investigate the malfunction of the ship's sentient computer, HAL 9000, which caused the disaster. The US government agrees to a joint mission when it is determined that Discovery will crash into Jupiter's moon Io before Discovery Two is ready. Floyd, along with Discovery designer Walter Curnow and HAL 9000's creator Dr. Chandra, joins the Soviet mission.
