Walter Koenig to become the last Star Trek original to land star honour

The actor, who played Pavel Chekov in the hit sci-fi series, will unveil the 2,479th star on Hollywood Boulevard, close to pal and co-star George Takei’s pavement plaque, on 10 September (12).

Koenig was one of the seven main cast members of the original Star Trek television series, which aired from 1966 to 1969.

A star-studded, two-day celebration is planned to kick off Koenig’s star ceremony – a gala event will commence on 8 September to mark the 46th anniversary of Star Trek and the festivities will culminate with a grand banquet and roast at the Beverly Garland Hotel a day later.
