Drawing a meaningful distinction between ďre-adaptationĒ and a ďremakeĒ strikes me as pointless and pedantic. That said, I think there have been some great remakes. I suspect the success/failure...

IIRC what happened to the troops is not explained. I assume the planet destroyed them before they reached the station.
