Walter Koenig is acclaimed for his involvement in two science-fiction phenomena. He is perhaps most celebrated for his role as the impetuous but lovable Ensign Chekov, the youthful crew member of the original Star Trek. Undoubtedly, though, he is most beloved for the menacing and strangely captivating Alfred Bester of Babylon 5. The creator of the series, J. Michael Straczynski, was so impressed by Koenig that he created the character especially for him. The overwhelmingly positive viewer response led to the reappearance of Bester more and more frequently, leading finally to twelve "Bester episodes", with the character growing more and more complex with each new appearance. Koenig's most dramatic performance takes place near the end of "Ship of Tears", when he brings a vulnerable and almost tender side to Bester, to the surprise and delight of all.

This site focuses on practical issues confronting his admirers. If you want to learn more about Walter Koenig, or if you're just looking for a good read, I highly recommend his autobiography Warped Factors.
