In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety. But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn't a primary concern. On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied 'droid--a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as "Murderbot." Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is. But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.

this is the first installment of many more to come, and I welcome it.....Martha Wells writes a real humdinger of a story that takes place on an unknown planet; a grumpy SecUnit security droid hacks its own com mode, and watches reruns of soap operas downloaded from the Network as it stands guard over planet exploratory scientists.....then murders happen, a rival corporate boss attempts a massacre, and the SecUnit reluctantly steps in to protect the hapless group, as it tries to balance a search for self-identity alongside a surprising surge of felt responsibility to fulfill at least the bones of its original contract to the scientists......calls itself 'Murderbot'.....
