American actor Walter Koenig was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California on September 10. He is best known for his role as Chekov in the hit sci-fi series Star Trek. Although he starred in another sci-fi favourite Babylon 5, his fans relate to him most as the naive young ensign on board the Starship Enterprise. That impression was further fuelled by the presence of his co-stars on the show – Leonard Nimoy and George Takei. Koenig was also joined by his wife and daughter for the big day.
Koenig related that he had always hoped that he’d make it to the Walk of Fame, but he never really expected that dream to come true. He said he was over the moon and felt both humbled and honoured.
