All Systems Red is the tense first science fiction adventure novella in Martha Wells´ series The Murderbot Diaries. For fans of Westworld, Ex Machina, Ann Leckie´s Imperial Raadch series, or Iain M. Banks´ Culture novels. All Systems Red tackles questions of the ethics of sentient robotics. The main character is a deadly security droid that has bucked its restrictive programming and is balanced between contemplative self-discovery and an idle instinct to kill all humans. 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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin R. Free.
