"Elena" is a Soviet scientist and old friend of "Dr. Heywood Floyd" (William Sylvester). Floyd, after arriving on orbit at Space Station V and making a video call to his daughter on Earth, encounters Elena with three other Soviet space officials: two women, Dr. Schretniyeva and Dr. Kallini, plus Floyd's counterpart in the Soviet space program, Dr. Andei Smyslov (Leonard Rossiter). Elena and Floyd (Chairman of the US National Council on Astronautics, US Astronautics Agency) make small talk about "Gregor," presumably Elena's husband. At the end of Floyd's exchange with Smyslov, Floyd stands to leave; Elena offers an invitation to the "IAC conference in June." Elena and the three other Soviets make comments in Russian after Floyd exits the scene.
