Hi, many years ago I read a sci fi book and want to find it again but can't remember the title (typical). I think it was written in the 80s. All I remember of the book are the following: 1) the protagonist is an archaeologist with cybernetic eyes. 2) there is a space ship that has been over run (i think by plants) do to neglect but has a spider shaped pod that can be used to go outside the hull. 3) pretty sure it ended with a planet that turned the main character into a higher being but not sure about that bit. Very vague I know, sorry, but if this rings a bell for anyone would be much appreciated have been hunting for this one for years.
