5150: Zombies

No, this isn't a new title, so don't ask when it's coming out! Well, I'm actually thinking of making this for myself, hence the topic. Anyway, here's the question: does anyone have any experience merging the future of 5150 with the horror of ATZ?

Funny you should ask. Some would say 5150 infestation back in '06. Which coincidentally will be the 1st 5150 Missions book.

No experience, but it shouldn't be too hard.
Pull the zombie rules that you need to drive the zeds, grab the appropriate charts, then stick your 5150 squad in the middle of it. Maybe they were sent to investigate why communication was lost (sound familiar?). Maybe they were on long term maneuvers in the out back and when they got back to base they noticed that everyone was 'infected'.

That's what's so cool about Ed's rules, you really can mix and match to achieve what you want without breaking them.

@Ed - I feel like I've seen the cover of a holy manuscript! Thanks! Also, great minds think alike and all that.

@Stryderg - That's what I was thinking, too. The great intellect in this thread knows no bounds!

I was just thinking about the same thing this morning as I enjoyed my tea. The loneliness of space... and the moaning of zombies.

... a zombie planet
... returning to find a zombie apocalypse
... a zombie dicovered on board after leaving space dock

lots of options...

...an SOS from a space station (think Babylon 5). When you get there, you find...zombies
...a derelict ship infested with zombies
...a planet involved in a "civil war" between the alien inhabitants and their version of zombies
