Nuclear Wessels – the best Chekov scene in Star Trek?

Nuclear Wessels

Today is Walter Koenig’s 80th birthday.  I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years, and it really was a pleasure.  He was self depreciating, funny, charming, and kind.  Always nice when this happens!

His birthday gets me to thinking about the best Chekov moments in Star Trek (let’s not mention Renegades though), and there have been many.  Khan’s gross little ear diving creatures in Star Trek 2.  His entertaining banter with Sulul.

Then there is this scene.  Not just one of the best Chekov scenes, but one of the funniest Star Trek scenes too!  Happy Birthday Walter!
