Story 196
Walter Koenig - In the summer of 1992, I was at an Air Force Officer training course in Montgomery, Alabama for 4 weeks. During that time, my wife was pregnant with our first child and living with her grandmother in St. Louis, so I had to find things to do to occupy my time on the weekends. One weekend, there was a local Star Trek convention, and while a big Trek fan from little on, I had never actually been to a convention. The "draw" for this convention was Mr. Chekov himself, Walter Koenig. After perusing the vendors, I found myself needing some "relief", so I headed for one of the bathrooms in the Ramada or whatever hotel it was in. Now, I don't remember which of us arrived first, but I found myself standing next to Mr Koenig at the urinal. We were the only ones in there, and guys don't strike up conversation with each other in that time/place, so I had to settle for just listening to him whine, rant, and complain about Shatner and Nimoy during his personal appearance. So, that's my "claim to Star Trek fame" ... whizzing next to the locator of the "nuclear wessels"! (and, by the way, we are both named "Walt")
