Beam Me Up
|A sure way to get Space Cadet's attention.|
Its name is a reference to the famous phrase "beam me up, Scotty," from the science fiction TV show, Star Trek. Ironically, this quote was infamously misquoted; it was never actually said in the show.

A sure way to get Space Cadet's attention.
- Set change: Basic → Premium.
This trick creates a zombie with decent stats that won't fail you in combat. Furthermore, since zombie tricks go after plants, you can play this trick as you would play a 2/3 zombie without being affected by plants. You can play this trick in a lane with a plant that has 2 or less strength to keep it alive as well as destroying a plant that has 2 health or less. In other cases, this can be use to block a powerful attack from a plant that has a lot of strength in a cheap price of 2 brains.
Since Space Cadet is a science zombie that is summoned by this trick, you can combine this with Zombot Drone Engineer or Gadget Scientist to make a perfect combo for bonus attacks and more powerful.
This trick is difficult to combat, as it spawns a zombie with above average stats as early as the second turn. Because it's a trick, there is no telling where this will be used. Though usually, this will try to either take care of weak plants or attack the plant hero. In addition, it is a science zombie, meaning Zombot Drone Engineer can boost its strength, which can be troubling early in the game. Wall-Nuts and Potato Mines are recommended to protect plants, as well as any other plant with Team-Up.
- Before version 1.2.11, if one looks at the Space Cadet while viewing Beam Me Up's description, they can see that there is no dirt surrounding the Space Cadet.
- This was likely an oversight.
