Walter Koenig Gets His Star on the Walk of Fame & A Gala Event in September

Walter Koenig

As we reported back in June, Star Trek‘s original Pavel Chekov, Walter Koenig, will finally receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, September 10th.

Koenig is the final main cast member from Star Trek: The Original Series to receive one of the entertainment industries highest recognitions — a five point terrazzo and brass star embedded into the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard.

The stars, administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust, have been given to more than 2,400 actors, musicians, directors, producers and fictional characters.

As you’d imagine, when this news broke, several of Koenig’s friends and fans wanted to congratulate him on this award. A video has been compiled, featuring well wishes from Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Michael and Denise Okuda, Larry Nemecek and several more.

Watch the video below.

In celebration of Koenig’s induction, a special gala celebration has been organized by the promoters of the Planet Expo events. Leonard Nimoy and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski have already been announced to speak at the ceremony.

    Obviously he’s not an original series cast member, but does Patrick Stewart have a star? If not I think we need to start a petition to get him one! Engage!
