The only thing I actually liked better in the film was the part were Hal overhears Bowman and Poole ploting against him. I really enjoyed reading this and I think any other sci-fi fan will too.

Mission Control did not want the crew of Discovery to have their thinking compromised by the knowledge that alien contact was already real.

With the crew dead, HAL reasons, he would not need to lie to them. After Frank is killed while attempting to repair the communications antenna he is pulled away into deep space using the safety tether which is still attached to both the pod and Frank Poole's spacesuit.

Dave begins to revive his hibernating crew mates, but is foiled when HAL vents the ship's atmosphere into the vacuum of space, killing the awakening crew members and almost killing Bowman, who is only narrowly saved when he finds his way to an emergency chamber which has its own oxygen supply and a spare space suit inside.

In both versions, Bowman then proceeds to shut down the machine. In the film, HAL's central core is depicted as a crawlspace full of brightly lit computer modules mounted in arrays from which they can be inserted or removed.

Therefore, HAL made the decision to kill the crew, thereby allowing him to obey both his hardwired instructions to report data truthfully and in full, and his orders to keep the monolith a secret.

In essence: if the crew were dead, he would no longer have to keep the information secret. The alien intelligence initiates a terraforming scheme, placing the Leonov, and everybody in it, in danger.

Its human crew devises an escape plan which unfortunately requires leaving the Discovery and HAL behind to be destroyed.
