So how will Keonig’s Pavel Chekov come across in the game? Cryptic wrote a dev blog today showing the creation of two versions of Chekov: one from the original series and one from the movie era.
It’s a good move on Keonig’s part, as it means that his character will finally get an overdue promotion in the franchise: “Things have changed in our timeline for Chekov since the incident on board the Enterprise-B and the loss of Captain Kirk. He’s been promoted to captain and has joined the ranks of the temporal agents, where he’ll play a key role in several missions […] Chekov remains one of our most prominent icons in the TOS experience. We had a lot of fun making him!”
