[[caption-width-right:312:This actually looks scary. And despite this book being an obvious parody of a particular genre and a specific fanbase, we are not joking about how scary that cover looks.]]

''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}} Franchise/{{Star Trek}} fanboys into the mix!

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."

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 fan kids now have to find their way to safety!
