Walter Koenig

Actor Walter Koenig is set to become the last member of the Star Trek TV series to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

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.

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.
