Extravehicular Activity Pods — EVA Pods — are small one-man transports designed to move outside of a spaceship, often to provide maintenance and carry out complex tasks with arm and hand controllers. The deep space exploration spacecraft, Discovery XD-1, carries three EVA Pods, named Alice, Betty and Clara. EVA Pods are self-sufficient vehicles equipped with maneuvering and life-support systems, including a pressurized interior which allows the astronaut to perform an EVA in the pod without having to wear a full spacesuit. The EVA Pod can also be remotely controlled by the Discovery's on-board HAL9000 super-computer.

Due to conflicting information in his mission programming, the HAL9000 computer malfunctions, becomes paranoid, and kills all of the crew except for Commander David Bowman, who manages to survive by removing HAL’s core memory banks.
