Win: Night of the Living Trekkies

We’re a bit behind with covering this Star Trek meets zombies book from Quirk Books but needless to say we’ll have a full review of it coming soon.

For those of you who don’t know already

This sci-fi/zombie/comedy/adventure follows a group of rag-tag Trekkies getting together for the fifth annual GulfCon (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, Star Wars, 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 satire!

and you can also check out the trailer here.

    kirk’s got balls for days…. he can take a klingon in hand-to-hand combat, and if kirk encounters something that doesn’t speak his language, chances are it isn’t gonna be around to stay for long. just look at the women he picks up, the whole laundry list of them. ALL stunning. picard lets cats aboard his ship. think about the pet dander problem aboard picard’s enterprise. get real…. kirk, no contest.

    Well there’s no question Kirk’s closer to being a zombie to start off with – he’s got that slow speech pattern where every word is its own sentence, he’s made it with green women, and his shirt is always torn, but Picard has an android doing his bidding so after he spills a little earl grey hot on himself due to his diminished hand eye coordination he’ll just get Data to rip the head off Kirk and that’d be that.

    I was going to say Zombie Kirk but then I gave it some more thought. These are the problems with Zombie Kirk as I see them. 1) Spock would tell him that being a zombie was illogical, mind meld with him and take away his craving for human brains. 2) He could be easily distracted by a beautiful woman making it easy for Zombie Picard to sneak up on him (while Kirk is getting his zombie groove on) and take his head. 3)McCoy. I mean c’mon the man is a genius, he’d come up with a cure in no time. So as much as I hate to say it I’ve gotta go with Zombie Picard for these reasons. 1) He’s got an empath. He wouldn’t even need to hunt for Kirk she’d “feel” where he was and Picard would send Worf to bring him back to his cabin where he’d enjoy his brains with a nice cup of replicated tea. 2) Riker. Let’s face it he wants to be captain. He knows Starfleet would never let a zombie captain the Enterprise so he wouldn’t even try to find Jean-Luc any help. 3) Data. Always so eager to try and fit in he’d try to be as zombielike as possible and a zombie android? Totally unstoppable. 4) Simulator deck. Zombie Picard would be able to simulate fighting Zombie Kirk thus preparing him for Kirks fighting style.
