Publisher's Summary

This is Koenig's story from growing up as the neurotic child of Russian immigrants in 1940s Manhattan through his rise to Star Trek fame as Pavel Chekov, Russian navigator of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and beyond.

Koenig's very human narrative is full of the kind of insecurities and quirks to which anyone can relate. With wry wit, striking candor, and a true gift for storytelling, Koening takes us on a sometimes bumpy but often hilarious trip through his galaxy. Blind faith and a healthy sense of irony seem to sustain him as he relates a steady stream of anecdotes.

Of course, this amusing memoir also takes us behind the scenes of Star Trek, with fresh perspectives not only on the cast members themselves but also on the development and evolution of the sci-fi legend. Having also enjoyed both critical and popular success on Babylon 5, Koening has repeatedly confirmed his enduring position in science fiction's acting pantheon.

Loved the book and loved that it gave a very candid picture of the television industry during the time of Star Trek and later Babylon 5.

A good read that shines a light on Mr. Koenig.

What did you like best about Warped Factors? What did you like least?

Mr. Koenig does a good job presenting his story. It had some twist and turns that gave me an insight on his true self. I was a little disappointed in the story itself. As a long time fan in was a bit surreal to hear that it was just another job. I understand that, but it didn't make any more fun to read.

Enjoyed it immensely

There were parts that were touching and parts that I laughed so hard I almost cried.
