+Plot summary: Murderbot returns to a mining planet where it remembers going rogue and killing lots of people (and then had its memory purged).
+Along the way, it meets an annoying transport that it befriends, and a group of humans who are trying to get their research back from somebody who's ripped them off.
+It helps the humans recover their research (and survive several assassination attempts), and discovers that the "going rogue" incident was actually somebody sending malware into all the bots in the mine.
