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?
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.

When I first heard about a star trek and a zombie mash up I said what the hey! When I have finally finished it, I have to say i was thourughl entertained. The theme was nice and the haractr eevelopment was also great. I still think that the gore needed more information, but it was still nice.
Make This So and Engage!
