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?

    " I don't really like this current trend to "horrorize" everything in sight. But this - due to the title alone - needed checking out. I was pleasantly surprised. I found an great zombie story in its own right and a interesting discussion of what the type of story we read says about our outlook: if you're here for Star Trek you are likly optimistic that everything will work out, If you're here for zombies your outlook is bleak. Very interesting idea (although a better and more throughough discussion can be found in the title essay of Patton Oswalt's Zombie Spaceship Wasteland ). Worth checking out. "

    " I saw this in the bookstore and the title instantly grabbed me... of course that frequently happens and then I turn to the first page and I put it down... NOT THIS TIME! I absolutely loved this book! I laughed all the way through it. I've always love Star Trek, especially "Next Generation" but I honestly I'm a much bigger Star Wars fan. It didn't matter with this book. If you watched Star Trek or Star Wars, you will definitely appreciate the humor! I really wish the authors would write more of this kind of fiction, it was definitely worth the read! They can even make fun of themselves as Trekkies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Seraphina | 1/29/2014

    " It's pretty funny. I read it in like four hours. It's a breeze to read!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent Knorr | 1/26/2014

    " It was a fairly silly book but I enjoyed it. At some point I think I'll try adapting it to an RPG game and running it over a weekend, I think that could be alot of fun :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lea | 1/25/2014

    " Hilarious, funny, awesome. Should you so desire, the audiobook is read by Will Wheaton... (And if I squint the princess' name looks like my own... Which basically means I get to listen to a story about myself and Will Wheaton... ) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/12/2014

    " Only worth reading if you know Star Trek incredibly well, which I do. I got the jokes, but it was mediocre story telling. The jokes made it bearable and 'a lighthearted romp', to put it quaintly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/10/2014

    " Star Trek and Zombies. What is not to like? Great fluffy reading for when you are looking for a quick dip into the genre. There are references both easy and hard to ST with the most obvious being the chapter titles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/26/2013

    " Okay, if you are even a little in to Star Trek or zombies, this book is for you! What a fun and funny read. This is a quick book that will make you laugh out loud. A must for all zombie fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KristenR | 12/7/2013

    " What a fun ride! Trekkies wielding bat'leths and tasers against zombies at a convention. I simply couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Athos | 12/4/2013

    " heh! What a fun read! Zombie mayhem at a Star Trek convention. For Trekkies, Star Wars fans and zombie genre lovers everywhere. It's strange that it should work so well, but it does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 11/29/2013

    " It is a cool pulp zombie story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Desmond | 11/19/2013

    " Really liked this - humourous, action packed with some very human moments. If you like Sci-Fi films, you'll enjoy this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 10/18/2013

    " Pulp. This is kinda the first time I've read pulp. Kinda enjoyed it. And a perfect time to read it, right around Halloween. Dunno that I would recommend this to anyone but the most nerdiest of my friends. Who like Trek. And zombies. In the same story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fiona | 7/8/2013

    " Fun to read. I bet I didn't get half the Star Trek jokes though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan | 3/5/2013

    " Fun read, especially since I am an old trekkie. One plot anomaly. There is a point in the story where the time is stated to be just before 5 a.m. and then a few pages later it's suddenly 10 till 4 a.m. Story and writing consistently good otherwise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Gilchrist | 12/26/2012

    " Good read & really funny, especially for those of that grew up with star trek. If you didn't watch star trek would still recommend but shame on you. Hehe! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Ramsey | 11/27/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book; anyone with some familiarity with conventions, Star Trek, Star Wars, and the fan world in general should find it very entertaining. And if you love zombies, well, it has those in spades. Well-written, engaging, and fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristofer Kupper | 3/26/2012

    " Funny, Scary, Nerdy, a great time and not overly gory/ "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gary | 1/19/2012

    " Interesting idea, some funny moments. Just a little too juvenile for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivy Reisner | 1/14/2012

    " Great parody. The protagonist is named "Jim Pike". If you grinned at that, you'll love this book. Those little references permeate the entire work. Very funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Addington | 1/12/2012

    " I love it when a book makes me laugh out loud and get scared all at once. Great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Athos | 5/11/2011

    " heh! What a fun read! Zombie mayhem at a Star Trek convention. For Trekkies, Star Wars fans and zombie genre lovers everywhere. It's strange that it should work so well, but it does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 4/16/2011

    " I'm not usually a big zombie book fan, but this one I'd recommend to anyone who likes the genre, and to any Star Trek fan. It's a good distraction for a few hours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/11/2011

    " Highly entertaining and perfect for a geek. The inside jokes are hilarious. And be on the lookout for the South Park joke just for kicks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 3/26/2011

    " Best.Book.Ever!
    (ok,the Bible is the best book EVER ....but this one rocked) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MB | 3/9/2011

    " Hilarious. I expected it to be 100% hokey without a real plot, but it offered up an interesting explanation for the zombie infestation. Nicely done. And the Star Trek convention as the setting was, well, out of this world. Funny, a bit suspenseful, highly recommended for zombie fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 3/8/2011

    " I loved this book! I went in thinking that this would be so-so but wow I was wrong. I do think you need to know at least some about Star Trek get some of the jokes and references but I don't think that it is entirely necessary. I am very surprised at the quality of this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liane | 3/6/2011

    " It was an amusing read. I had to confer with my resident Star Trek expert in order to get a few of the jokes. Just wondering though ... why are zombies so popular these days? "
