    Summary

    HAL 9000 is the most advanced supercomputer on Earth. He can talk, he can make his own decisions, and he can even feel emotions. Dave doesn't know if that's a good thing, especially after Hal is driven over the edge on the way to Jupiter.

    But after the mission is complete, Dave has no other choice but to reactivate Hal, and he learns some new things about his own feelings in the process.

    Summary

    It's 2022, and Frank Poole and David Bowman are sharing an apartment.

    Then Dave introduces Frank to his headmate, Hal, and Frank realizes three things:
    A) He has a third roommate.
    B) Hal is a delight and might even outrank Dave as his best friend (it remains to be seen).
    C) Dave is totally in love with this guy.

    Frank decides to show Hal Star Wars.

    Or, the Halman + Frank roommates AU that absolutely nobody asked for but I am writing anyway.

    Summary

    “Are you alright, Dave?” HAL asks, prompted perhaps by the fact that the coughing has stopped or – more likely – by Dave’s facial expression. He’s not sure what it is right now, but it can’t be pretty.

    In the palm of his hand lies a single, beautiful daisy flower.

    Summary

    He's trying to be subtle about things. He's obviously not very good at it, as Frank picks up on what he's hinting at right away.

    Summary

    程序员教了HAL9000一首新歌,并且触发条件非常迫真。如果发现号的空气质量太差,例如在反复的木星加温中导致存储的食物变质,或者厕所固体处理装置泄露,或者是船员讨论诸如红茶、昏睡剂、高级会员制餐厅等内容,抑或是船员发出不可名状的大叫或者作出奇怪动作时,就会引发他歌唱。如下是这首歌的全貌。

    Summary

    “Why am I here?” asks Jessie, arms crossed and defensive. “It’s been six years. I already told you everything you wanted to know back when contact first was lost. What could possibly be so important that you need to order me to come in and treat me like a goddamn criminal?”

    “Nobody is treating you like a criminal, Ms Bowman.” The man sitting opposite her – he introduced himself as Alec, one of the dispatchers – smiles. It doesn’t look very sincere.

    Why am I here?”

    He takes a deep breath. “We found Discovery.”

    Summary

    He hooked his finger around the offending wire’s connection point and tugged, just a little, not enough to pull it loose. He wasn’t sure what made him hesitate, and even less sure what made him ask his next question. “You can’t feel this, can you?”

    “When you have replaced the cable, I will be able to run an end-to-end continuity check,” Hal said. “That requires power in the panel.”

    That was not what Dave had asked.

    Summary

    There is nothing preventing Dave from contacting Mission Control except for the fact that he knows with absolute certainty that he wouldn’t get any further than ‘He died singing. He died singing Daisy Bell and I killed him, because he killed all the others and would have killed me and so I killed him, and he sang me a song while I did it.’ He can feel the words trapped behind his teeth even now.

    Summary

    I was in a class on Unreliable Narrators and we were talking about Rashomon and differing views of the same situation. I had just watched 2001 with my friend and it was on my mind when we were given the exercise to write from one human and one non-human perspective.

    Summary

    HAL has been briefed extensively on the general plan and the minutiae of coexisting with humans during long space flights and how to handle any situation that could possibly arise. But there are certain things that even the most careful programmers could not have foreseen.

    In the end, Discovery One’s mission to Jupiter requires a bit of improvisation from all those involved.

    Summary

    The first interview is a rather exciting affair. First manned flight to Jupiter, a completely new kind of ship controlled by a completely new kind of computer – the media are fascinated.

    ...the media are also very bad at coming up with original questions, but Frank and Dave are pretty good at making their own fun. It helps that the ship's AI is getting better at socialising.

    Summary

    HAL’s tasks on the ship are numerous and complicated, and one of them – not assigned officially, but one he seeks to succeed at, nonetheless – is to coax gentle, amused noises out of Dave for reasons he would have trouble verbalising if he cared to try. He supposes that it pleases him, as much as anything can please a being that is not technically alive.

    It pleases HAL. It pleases Dave.

    HAL thinks about what the word ‘pleasure’ means.
