You met him as the navigator on the Bridge, but what roles did Pavel Chekov play aboard the USS Enterprise before his promotion to the starboard seat? Find out as we go below decks for "Mister Chekov," courtesy of writer/photoartist John Byrne!


Captain's log, stardate 2135.9. 
End of shift, and I am preparing to turn full command over to my first officer for a few hours. All seems peaceful.

During the night shift, newly-arrived Ensign Pavel Chekov was settling in to his role as an assistant in engineering and working directly with Montgomery Scott. They worked together in a Jefferies tube and then recalibrated the intercooloers.

That evening, warp engine power levels began to rise mysteriously. The Enterprise had encountered an expanding spacial disturbance which Hikaru Sulu dubbed Solid Space, an intersection point with a parallel universe. If it wasn't stopped, it might trigger a Big Bang and annihilate the prime universe. As the disruption expanded to fill the galaxy, the ship's warp engines soaked up mammoth amounts of power. Shea and Chekov helped Scott disperse that excess energy by firing aft phasers continuously. Spock theorized that a massive, sudden injection of energy to the center of the disturbance would invert it.

During their approach to the center, the navigator's station overloaded and knocked out Sean DePaul. Chekov was on the bridge and pointed out that the burnt-out station was still usable. Sulu told James T. Kirk that he'd worked with Chekov on the simulator and seen a flair for navigation. Chekov manned the station for the first time. Once the requisite energy was released, Sulu and Chekov prevented the ship from being sucked into the parallel universe. Kirk gave Chekov an official commendation in his ship's log.

Three months later, Nyota Uhura brought Chekov a gift from Kirk: promotion to bridge duty and a command division gold shirt.
