As classic Star Trek celebrates its 46th anniversary, the last member of the original series without a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is getting his star today.
Walter Koenig, who played Pavel Chekov for two seasons and all six classic Trek movies will get his star dedicated today. The ceremony takes place at 12:30 p.m. in Hollywood.
Koenig is the final member of the original series crew to get a star. He tells the Hollywood Reporter, “I saw Big Bird out there, and it wasn’t such a stretch that there could be also a star for Walter Koenig.”
The trade paper has a full interview with Koenig, reflecting on his time on Trek and his new graphic novel about vampires. You can read the full interview HERE.
Congratulations to Walter on this honor!

It was great to see Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols & George Takei show up to give their support to Walter on this his great day. The only living remaining star of the original iconic franchise conspicuously missing was Big Shat, William Shatner. He could have been on the road doing his one man show “Shatner’s World,” at least, I hope that was his reason, especially after Walter went out of his way to answer Bill’s request last year to appear with him on his interview show & they publicly worked out their longstanding differences.
