How Walter Koenig’s Career on Star Trek Came About
Walter had his first leading role in an episode on the Mr. Novak show. He played a Russian exchange student who came to the American High School.
This excellent performance in part later landed him the game changing role of “Pavel Chekov” on Star Trek.
Walter gave an exclusive interview, wrote the Afterword and provided photos from his personal archive for the new book.
The DVD release next Spring of the first season of Mr. Novak will contain “The Boy without a Country” which features Walter’s great performance as Alexi Dubov.
