Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall

I haven't blogged forever! So I'm going to do a massive blog update today with everything that I have been doing for awhile (mainly what movies I have seen). I'm going to start off with one of the funniest things I have ever read.

Night of the Living Trekkies is freaking hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't ever remember how I found it but I was on Amazon and I found it and preordered it. I got it and read it in a day. I was laughing so hard.
This book is about a guy named Jim Pike (JIM kirk and christopher PIKE haha) who growing up was a Star Trek fan, but after two tours in Afghanistan, he didn't believe in fantisy anymore and just wanted a no responsibilty job to do nothing in. He works at a hotel in Houston called Botany Bay (based of the place Captain Cook named in Australia and not the ship Khan was on) which is holding a Star Trek convention. His sister, Rayna, is coming to the convention with some friends. But not too far away, a underground facility housing things infected with some virus somehow gets out of control and stuff gets out.
Suddenly a friendly Star Trek convention turns into ground zero for a zombie apocalypse. Jim now can't escape responsibility when he has to save a group of survivors from the hotel. He has to fight tons of zombies with only Star Trek weapons, Tasers, and a single gun.
This book was hilarious. There were so many Star Trek references and some Star Wars references. Every chapter was titled after a Star Trek episode (most of them the Original Series). There were mentions of things like Hortas, Spock's brain, the Star Trek movies, and things from Star Wars. I want to lend this book to my Star Trek friends so they can read it. I was so funny.

  1. Wow! That has got to be the oddest twist on Star Trek ever! That's funny. I can totally see you reading it in a day...haha.....I have to admit though, zombie Kirk and Spock have just eaten my brain. They look so freaky!
