* OlderThanHeLooks: Played with, along with DawsonCasting. He was 30 when he joined the cast of Star Trek, playing 22 year old Chekov. Throughout the movies he still maintained much of his youthful looks, even as Chekov himself approached middle age.

* PlayingAgainstType: One will frequently need to remind himself that this is the same actor who played Chekov when watching him as Bester. Koenig eventually stated that, partly for this reason, Bester is the role that he's most fond of.

* HeReallyCanAct: After decades playing Chekov, many viewers were pleasantly surprised at what an effective MagnificentBastard he played as Alfred Bester on ''Babylon 5''. Reportedly, Koenig was the envy of the ''Trek'' alumni to have such a juicy recurring role.
