GoodReads Summary: Jim Pike, the disillusioned manager of a hotel that is hosting a Star Trek convention, finds himself leading a ragtag crew of survivors as a strange virus turns the convention-goers into zombies...
I'm not a fan of zombie movies/books. But I'm a Star Trek fan. And oh boy, this is a fun book.
While some events in the story may be too cliché (specially in the zombie genre), the way the author interweaves with Star Trek philosophy and Trek fandom is brilliant. And also gets bonus points for not doing "A red shirt on the Enterprise gets infected with a virus and starts zombifying everyone"; instead, it takes the fandom and infects its.
And while the cliché parts, although cliché, fit the story, the fact that the author also goes into deep in what Star Trek is and what it represents to its fans, it's pretty damn amazing.
I really really liked it.
