This is not your typical {{Zombie Apocalypse}}. It's been blatantly stated that "This is an original work of fiction, horror, and [[AffectionateParody parody]]. and is not officially sponsored by, affiliated with, or endorsed by the owners of the Star Trek® brand." It has plenty of [[BloodyHilarious laughs]] and [[TearJerker drama]] to satisfy almost anyone looking for a good read.

Jim Pike is an ex-Trekkie and Afghanistan war vet. Now discharged, he runs a hotel that gets overrun by Star Trek fans when a convention rolls into town. However, things [[FromBadToWorse things quickly go south]] when a [[TheVirus strange virus]] causes many of the fankids to turn into flesh-eating monsters! Jim and a small group of [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits fan kids]] now have to find their way to safety!

An extremely well-made trailer for the book can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyO2k-jApng here]].

''Night of the Living Trekkies'' by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall adds a new twist to the usual {{Zombie Apocalypse}} story by throwing a bunch of {{Genre Savvy}} {{Star Trek}} fanboys into the mix!
