“Night of the Living Trekkies” tries to do exactly what it sounds like: Night of the Living Dead meets Star Trek. Written by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall “Night of the Living Trekkies” mixes a zombie apocalypse with the enduring pop-culture phenomenon of sci-fi fandom. Don’t read much (what fan boy doesn’t?) well, Quirk Books just released a live action trailer for “Night of the Living Trekkies”, and – seriously- it’s the most awesome thing you’ll see all day.

Quirk’s book trailers have always been a cut above (pun totally intended) the usual promotional puffery (check out similarly great trailers for Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), but this one is truly great. Fast, funny, and loaded with countless references to Star Trek, geek culture, and science-fiction conventions. Action, humor and gore abounds! My only question is when will they release a full movie? I want to see more!
