|Nov-26-03|| ||Master of Sacrifice: maybe its a different Valery Chekhov and the database accidentally mixed them. I mean, the database has a game from 1893, then immediately afterward a game from 1972. Clearly two different players. |
|Nov-26-03|| ||chessgames.com: The game from 1893 was a different Chekhov (obviously!) and we have it fixed now. |

|Dec-26-04|| ||Benzol: Valery Alexandrovich Chekhov
Born 27th November 1955
He became an IM in 1975 and a GM in 1984. He was World Junior Champion in 1975.
|Mar-09-08|| ||Open Defence: so when did he join the star ship Enterprise ?|
|Nov-27-08|| ||BIDMONFA: Valery A Chekhov|
|Nov-27-08|| ||Karpova: <"Chess used to be prestigious," said Valery Chekhov, a junior world champion in the 1970s. "Now not as much. But children are starting to love it for different reasons."|
The main reason is the use of computers in today's chess world, which has sparked a resurgence of interest among children, Chekhov said.
Kasparov and his predecessors became champions through endless reading and playing, but chess experts agree that computers have pushed the game to a higher level - making chess research and previous outcomes much more widely available.
Russia's bright chess future is visible at a children's center where Chekhov and his wife, Tatyana, provide free after-school lessons.
Tatyana Chekhov lectures to an attentive class full of young chess-lovers, gesturing with a pointer to a chess diagram taped to the blackboard.
In an adjacent room, children are immersed in brightly colored computer chess programs. Clicking on the correct answer to a problem prompts a cheery beep.>

|Nov-27-08|| ||Open Defence: It would appear to be the only logical explanation Captain...|
|Nov-27-08|| ||lentil: the star trek guy was named pavel chekhov|
|Nov-27-09|| ||edbermac: Where's Chekov? Out with Uhura looking for nuclear wessels.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||ComboKal: Here's a little Star Trek trivia that involves the <Continuum> with no <logical explanation>! |
In the movie <"The Wrath of Khan"> when <Khan> encounters <Pavel Chekov> on Ceti Alpha Five, he recognized him, claiming he never forgets a face.
How is this possible???
Chekov didn't appear on the TV series until the second season, and therefore was not in the first season episode <"Space Seed"> which featured the imfamous Khan, and his crew of the Botany Bay.
|Dec-27-09|| ||talisman: Uncle Vanya!|

|Nov-27-11|| ||Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday! Valery A Chekhov !|
|Nov-27-12|| ||Abdel Irada: I imagine that the 19th-century playwright Anton Chekhov (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_...) would be somewhat put out to discover that his fame has been eclipsed by a cheesy pseudo-Russian comic deuteragonist in a made-for-television 20th-century science-fiction drama.|
And I'm not sure that he'd find much consolation in the fact that the latter was a namesake of his father, Pavel Yegorovich Chekhov.
|Nov-27-12|| ||YoungEd: I don't know if this player is married, but if so his wife is Chekov mate.|

Your mistake is in the word "therefore". ("We didn't see him, therefore he didn't exist", which is clearly wrong).
Obviously Chekov WAS on the Enterprise during Space Seed. We have an explicit onscreen statement that he was, and no evidence to show that he wasn't.
