Anyone remember “2010” the sequel to Arthur C. Clarke’s “2001: A Space Odyssey?”
Part of the plot is actually happening now:

“ALL THESE WORLDS
ARE YOURS EXCEPT
USE THEM TOGETHER
USE THEM IN PEACE””

Frank was Frank Poole.
The last two lines were not orginally by Clarke, but added in by director Peter Hyams for the film.
