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, 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 mash-ups!

Truth be told, most zombie fiction is pretty bad. Whether it be the poor writing or bland characters put into cliche scenarios, I tend to put down most of these books rather than finish them. Thankfully, this book avoids a lot of the pitfalls and tells a funny albeit dramatic story about Star Trek fans trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. It's a fun read for sure, and if you're a Trekkie, you'll love all the Star Trek references scattered throughout the pages. Each chapter is named after an episode which works most of the time.
The wonderful thing about this book is that keeps its eyes always focused on the story. The characters feel real and their encounters can be gripping and sometimes tragic. The concept, while funny, is kept in check by the author's attention to plot and character.
Honestly, this could have been a disaster with lesser skilled writers, but instead, it was a refreshing read that I highly recommend.

Even several glaring factual errors (both in Star Trek Mythos and in Science) were not able to derail this fun, fun, listen. Even the chapter titles would put a smile on my face. If you enjoyed the movie Free Enterprise, you'll enjoy this book

Admit it - you're a Trekkie/Geek/Nerd/Gamer/Zombie
- or you wouldn't even be looking at this book!
Not going to try to pr?cis the book suffice to say its fun, plain and simple.
I didn't consider myself a Trekkie etc but the number of references that I picked up on leaves me to believe that a 'REAL' Trekkie would find so many more, well worth taking a on long road trip especially with like minded friends!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Great humour, interesting concept, surprising heroes.
What other book might you compare Night of the Living Trekkies to, and why?
Nothing like it out there!
What does Zach McLarty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Zach McLarty brings humour to the story but takes it seriously. The author has his tongue in his cheek if Zach had too it would have over done it.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
There are so many tag lines you could link to from Star Trek whatever I suggest someone else would improve on it
Any additional comments?
It's just a major, fun, surprise!
