Night of the Living Trekkiesby Kevin David Anderson
Synopses & Reviews
This sci-fi /zombie/comedy/adventure follows a group of rag-tag Trekkies getting together for the fifth annual FedCon (billed as the largest Starfleet Convention in the western Gulf Coast region).
Our heroes are dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers but soon find themselves defending their hotel and convention center against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Suddenly, all of their useless knowledge about particle physics and old Star Trek episodes has genuine real-world applications And while hotel employees and regular civilians are dying left and right, our Trekkies summon strength and courage by emulating their favorite starship-voyaging characters.
Packed with hundreds of gags referencing Star Trek, comic books, and fan conventions, Night of the Living Trekkies reads like the strange lovechild of Galaxy Quest and Dawn of the Dead. Journey to the final frontier of zombie science-fiction mash-ups

"Science fiction geekdom meets the zombie apocalypse in this engaging and genuinely funny parody. Disillusioned army vet Jim Pike is home from Afghanistan and working as a 'glorified bellhop' in a hotel in Houston that's preparing to host hundreds of Star Trek fans for GulfCon, the 'biggest all-Trek con in the South.' The already surreal convention turns nightmarish when convention-goers begin turning into cannibalistic zombies. As tricorder-wielding flesh-eaters overrun the city, Pike and a small band of survivors, armed with Klingon bat'leths and Vulcan lirpas, must find a way to escape. The fusion of campy zombie-powered storyline, abundant Star Trek trivia, and hilarious one-liners makes this an utterly unforgettable read that will be cherished by Trekkies, Trekkers, and horror fans alike. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
In the vein of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" comes a science fiction parody packed with hundreds of gags referencing "Star Trek," comic books, and fan conventions.
Journey to the final frontier of sci-fi zombie horror!
Jim Pike was the world’s biggest Star Trek fan—until two tours of duty in Afghanistan destroyed his faith in the human race. Now he sleepwalks through life as the assistant manager of a small hotel in downtown Houston.
But when hundreds of Trekkies arrive in his lobby for a science-fiction convention, Jim finds himself surrounded by costumed Klingons, Vulcans, and Ferengi—plus a strange virus that transforms its carriers into savage, flesh-eating zombies!
As bloody corpses stumble to life and the planet teeters on the brink of total apocalypse, Jim must deliver a ragtag crew of fanboys and fangirls to safety. Dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers, their prime directive is to survive. But how long can they last in the ultimate no-win scenario?
