All Systems Red by Martha Wells

SecUnits are tough, heavily armed combinations of human and robotic components that keep people safe. Their behavior is controlled by a governor module.

This SecUnit is accompanying members of a planetary survey team. It has hacked its governor, and can pretty much do whatever it wants, which is secretly watching hundreds of hours of downloaded entertainment.

After a violent attack by local fauna, it becomes clear the survey team is being sabotaged.

On a world where the scientists don’t know who to trust, a hacked SecUnit that’s been protecting them of its own accord might be their best ally. But will they believe that? If they find out its secret, will it be recycled?
