All the other cast members of classic Star Trek have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, except for Walter Koenig.
That’s an error that will soon be corrected, however. Koenig will get a star on the Walk of Fame later this year.
“I certainly do feel honored,” Koenig tells StarTrek.com. “It means that my modest body of work has some meaning and has been acknowledged. That’s always a very nice feeling.”
Countless Star Trek fans pushed hard to make today’s news a reality, and Koenig had a special message for them: “They’ve been incredible and I’m deeply grateful for their support,” he said. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Koenig played Ensign Chekov in seasons two and three of the classic TV series as well as the first six Trek films. He also had a recurring role on Babylon Five.
