It is nine years after the mysterious failure of the Discovery One mission to Jupiter in 2001, which resulted in the deaths of four crew members and the disappearance of mission commander David Bowman. Blamed for the fiasco, Dr. Heywood Floyd resigned his position as head of the National Council for Astronautics. While an international dispute causes tension between the United States and the Soviet Union, both nations prepare space missions to determine what happened to the Discovery; the Soviet spacecraft Leonov (named after the cosmonaut Alexei Leonov) will be ready before the American spacecraft Discovery Two, but 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 U.S. 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. Upon arriving at Jupiter, the crew detects signs of life on Jupiter’s seemingly barren moon Europa. They send an unmanned probe down to Europa to investigate the unusual readings, but just as it finds the source, a mysterious energy burst destroys the probe and its data. The “burst” then flies toward Jupiter. The Soviets believe the burst was simply electrostatic build-up, but Floyd suspects it was a warning to stay away from Europa.
