Favorite Sci-Fi Vehicles: Discovery One

Vehicle: USS Discovery One
Film/s: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984)


The design of Discovery One is as iconic as its inhuman occupant, HAL-9000. Everything about this spacecraft is beautiful, including the excursion pods, which could have their own entry here. They’re mirror images of Discovery One‘s main orb. Just don’t ask the AI to lie.
