Here is a new interview with Walter, from the set of “Star Trek: Renegades.”
Did you miss this year’s Phoenix ComiCon, in Arizona, back in the spring? Luckily, the main “Babylon 5” panel was captured on video by the YouTube user Nai Wang. It’s in 2 parts and totals about 2 hours. Hope you enjoy!
Here is a three-part interview with Walter, done by the “Star Trek: Renegades” production, about the new fan film he has been working on. A new IndieGoGo fund was started to raise money for even better production and again, the goal was reached with some to spare. You can still donate to the fund by going here and donating with PayPal. Filming begins in October and the movie is set to debut in 2014!
Walter filmed and interview with EmmyTVLegends.org at the end of last year/beginning of this year, for their “Archive of American Television.” They’ve finally released the video on YouTube! You can view the first part of the interview below and follow each part consecutively as it pops up- or, I will be posting them in the interview archive of this site, as well. The interview lasts a total of about 4 hours! You’ll learn plenty about Walter throughout the entire thing! Hope everyone enjoys watching as much as he enjoyed being a part of it!
Walter was at the Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle, WA, alongside Patrick Stewart, Gillian Anderson, and Misha Collins- as well as many other guests. The show was attended by nearly 50,000 people! Walter’s panel was a full house and moderated by David Boze of Seattle’s KIRO Radio. Were you one of the many attendees of the convention? Did you get the chance to meet Walter? Were you at his panel, “To Boldly Go: A Conversation With Walter Koenig?”
And, a 2 part video of Walter’s panel, posted by YouTube user Lauren Hardy:

On Tuesday, Walter did a radio interview with David Boze at KIRO Radio, of Seattle, WA, in preparation for Emerald City ComiCon this coming weekend. It’s only about 15 minutes long, but it’s still the classic Walter that we’ve all come to know and love. You can listen to the entire interview HERE, on the official KIRO Radio website.

Walter recently recorded a recital of the poem “Why the Caged Bird Sings,” by Maya Angelou, for the Clean Water for Haitian Children project run by Mr. Pratt and his Sociology students. The recording was for a Radiothon on WTRE 1330AM. The goal of the event was to raise $2,000 for Pastor Beaufort Louis Juste’s Orphanage, so they can build a water filtration system for the orphans placed there. The event was held on the 28th of October. For more information or to contact Mr. Pratt for inquiries on this project, just check out the Chautauqua Website!
