Star Trek Horror

By Kevin David Anderson

As a fan and writer of horror, I tend to look for and find the horror in everything. From romantic comedies to presidential debates, I can somehow see the terror, the dread, and the worse case scenario in all stories, real or imagined. But when it comes to my favorite science fiction franchise, Star Trek, the search for horror, both dark and scary, is never difficult. Not the dystopian horror of 1984 or The Hunger Games, but good old fashion B-movie creature feature Halloween horror; vampires, zombies, shape shifters, body snatchers, and even serial killers can all be found in Star Trek.

So when you go to select some Halloween entertainment on this Hallows’ Eve, forget Freddy. That nightmare is over. Jason and Michael, give them a rest this year. This Halloween after the trick or treating is done, and the orange glow of jack-o-lanterns have been extinguished, settle in on the couch, dim the lights, and watch Star Trek.

The following list of episodes is a mix of some of my personal favorites, and those suggested by followers of the Night of the Living Trekkies Facebook page.

The horror begins with…

Leprekhhhaaaaaan!!!

Kevin David Anderson, author of Night Of The Living Trekkies, sent us a fun greeting for St. Patrick’s Day which mashes up the evil Leprechaun from the Leprechaun horror movies, with Star Trek‘s beloved Captain James T. Kirk in “Leprekhhhaaaaaan!!!”

If you don’t get this reference, I implore you to immediately watch one of the greatest movies ever, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone!

Quirk 2010 Mix Tape

At the end of 2010, a nifty little item arrived from Quirk Books, the publisher of such titles as Dracula’s Heir, Night of the Living Trekkies, The Encyclopedia Shatnerica, and of course, their most popular offering, the zombie/classic lit mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: a Mix Tape!

The image above was on the cover of the cassette case (click image to see the full view, including the actual tape), and inside was what looked like a cassette tape, but upon further inspection, I saw that it was actually a USB flash drive. A message inside explained that because the good folks at Quirk Books love me soooooo much, they put together a mix of songs as a thank you.

Night of the Living Trekkies

Earlier this month, Quirk Books released their latest mash-up novel Night Of The Living Trekkies, written by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall.

It’s a real fun book — yes, fun! — about a bunch of Star Trek convention attendees who find themselves faced with hordes of the undead! [Check out my full review of the book for my thoughts.]

Quirk has just released a trailer for Night Of The Living Trekkies, which you can watch here below.

I know, you’re probably not accustomed to watching trailers for books, but this one is pretty hilarious. Matter of fact, I’m just about ready to see this movie made!

Night Of The Living TrekkiesNight Of The Living Trekkies
Paperback
By Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall
Quirk Books
Release date: September 1, 2010

Quirk Books has already proved successful with their literary monster mash-ups like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, and it looks like they’ve scored another hit with Night Of The Living Trekkies, a brand new tale based on two popular genres, zombies and scifi.

Written by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall, Night Of The Living Trekkies takes place during GulfCon, an annual Star Trek convention in Houston, Texas, hosted at the Botany Bay [wink wink] Hotel and Conference Center. This is not your simple Con — at this event, Trekkies and Trekkers (yes, there’s a difference and this story explains what it is) go out of their way to dress as the most obscure characters from the Star Trek franchise. The level of intensity in their planning and the creating of their costumes seems somewhat like that of the attendees of Dragon*Con in Atlanta, a cosplay-centered Con that takes place each year on Labor Day weekend, which was an appropriate time this year to release Night Of The Living Trekkies.

Geek Peek: Cover Art For ‘Star Trek’-Zombie Book ‘Night of the Living Trekkies’

Night of the Living TrekkiesBack in March, Quirk Books announced that they’d be releasing the zombie-Star Trek mash-up Night of the Living Trekkies on September 1, 2010, but at the time, the final artwork for the book wasn’t available [see Trek Meets Zombies In Quirk’s Upcoming ‘Night of the Living Trekkies’].

Now, Quirk has released the final artwork. Check out the cover art here at right (click for larger, full view).

This new scifi/zombie tale, which was written by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall, is “Galaxy Quest and Dawn of the Dead as hordes of undead attempt to feast upon the attendees of a Star Trek convention, but a group of Trekkies fight them off using what they learned from old Star Trek episodes.

Our Trek uniform-wearing cover model, a zombie with a sports sack, is wearing a pin that says “No Kill I” and holding the detached arm of his victim who obviously will not live long and prosper. Also, it looks like these ill-fated Trekkies are attending an event called Wrath of CON.

Night of the Living Trekkies is available now for pre-order right now.
