Pavel Chekov is the ensign aboard the USS Enterprise, serving under Captain James T. Kirk, in the 23rd century. When the Enterprise crossed over into the Planet of the Apes, he was the first to notice the parallel Earth. Later he joined an away team down to the planet, which they soon encountered Colonel George Taylor, who thereafter rendered Chekov unconscious and stole his communicator.
- He is a Boom! Studios exclusive, but like all Star Trek media, falls under the IDW Publishing license.
- He is exclusive to the Star Trek/Planet of the Apes crossover.
- Personality wise, Chekov is very proud of his Russian heritage and is known to exaggerate about it.
