2001: A Space Odyssey was a science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke, and a film directed by Stanley Kubrick, both released in 1968. It takes place primarily on an exploratory spaceship run by an artificial intelligence on a secretive mission to Jupiter.

On 19 July 1969, Roberta Lincoln invited Gary Seven to a screening of the film in a nearby theater in New York City. Following a visit to the USS Enterprise in 2269, however, Lincoln decided that the film would not be able to live up to her real-life experience. They instead went to see Funny Girl. (TOS novel: Assignment: Eternity)

When Khan Noonien Singh hacked into the Beta 5 computer on 9 November 1989, it affected the machine's speech interface in a way that Lincoln compared to a scene from 2001, in which the HAL 9000 computer sang the song "Daisy" while being deactivated. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)

In December 2152, 2001 was screened during "Movie Night" aboard the starship Enterprise. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

The dedication plaque of the USS Odyssey had a quote from 2001: A Space Odyssey: "Its origin and purpose, still a total mystery". (DS9 episode: "The Jem'Hadar")
