Runabouts & Zombies
Part of a double feature. 1)Use your runabout to pick up a Romulan Senator from Tal Shiar space and avoid Romulan Patrols. 2) Respond to a distress call from a startship who's crew have turned into flesh eating monsters.
As for the bugs. I suppose at the time people were leaving the perfect peaceful era of TOS. Which is most likely why it got negative feedback, we did see that creature burst out of the guys stomach and then the inners of his corpse.
Well regardless im going to give it a try. If people like it... great... if they dont.. well... "you'll get nothing and like it!"
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'm not one of those "negative reaction" people, though I admit that was about 3 years before I started watching Star Trek. Ever since I saw that episode I thought it was cool and always thought that was a plot that should be followed up on.
