The Storyline of The Series
The series will show brief events about the creation of black monoliths. Then the Final Odyssey shows the frozen astronaut Frank Poole who gets killed by the evil computer HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey. One millennium later, Poole gets rescued from space and brought to earth and he finds that he is in the year 3001.
In this year there are many new inventions that impress Poole such as BrainCap, engineered dinosaurs, massive space elevators constructed on all the equators. The humans have visited the four giant moons such as Jovian, Callisto, and Ganymede. The Black Monolith found in the year 1999 brought to the earth in 2006 and set in front of the United Nations building.
Then because of the Monoliths, the advanced world is at stake. The human race thought of as a failure race because of the 20th-century wars and the monoliths have already sent a message to the creators. Now Poole has to join forces with the Europa organization to save the world.
