Wiki sagt dazu folgendes:
Feature adaptation of the science fiction novel by Edward Ashton follows the story of Mickey 17, an “expendable,” who is a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim.
The novel’s story follows Mickey7, who is an Expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal…and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.
On a fairly routine scouting mission, Mickey7 goes missing and is presumed dead. By the time he returns to the colony base, surprisingly helped back by native life, Mickey7’s fate has been sealed. There’s a new clone, Mickey8, reporting for Expendable duties. The idea of duplicate Expendables is universally loathed, and if caught, they will likely be thrown into the recycler for protein.
Mickey7 must keep his double a secret from the rest of the colony. Meanwhile, life on Niflheim is getting worse. The atmosphere is unsuitable for humans, food is in short supply, and terraforming is going poorly. The native species are growing curious about their new neighbors, and that curiosity has Commander Marshall very afraid. Ultimately, the survival of both lifeforms will come down to Mickey7.
Hab den Part zur Story absichtlich weg gelassen, weil ich die Prämisse schon recht spoilerig finde. Wobei das vermutlich schon in einem Trailer herausposaunt wird. Ich vertraue einfach darauf, dass Boong Ho noch ein paar Überraschungen im Köcher hat.
