Personal Quote:

I didn't watch Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) the first year it was on, before I was on the show. I took one look at the Styrofoam rocks and said: "There's no way I'm going to watch this!". See more »


Walter Koenig is of Russian Jewish ancestry, which made him a good candidate for Chekov on Star Trek: The Original Series (1966). His family had emigrated from Lithuania, USSR and changed their original surname (Koenigsberg). See more »
