"Find Night of the Living Trekkies on Facebook 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!

Good amusing characters and story line. Also included some very specialized factoids about the Star Trek world. I really liked the essential traditional quotes from both Star Trek and Star Wars. However, the main character was pretty lame (the whole I'm-the-best-available-leader-but-I-don't-want-to-be-responsible wusses...). The wrap-up at the end was also terribly cheesy. But the writing style and humor makes it worth the suffering at the end.
