When I read the 2018 novel Blueshift by Joshua Dalzelle it seemed very familiar to me, to the point where I knew the ending before reading it. I'm certain it is based on an older movie, does anyone know what it might be?
Astronauts return to Earth after 800 years in space and sleep stasis abroad a private space ship, the Daedalus - they see the earth is dark. They get a signal says "No Earth" as they get close. There are evolved people on Mars that say they will help but they want the human history files aboard the Daedalus. Lot of infighting among the crew. There are human/creatures who think they are Gods from the stars and bring them offerings - deer, etc. Engraved skulls.
