Andrew Koenig (right), who played Kirk Cameron's friend "Boner" on Growing Pains, was the son of Walter Koenig, "Chekov" on the original Star Trek television series. Andrew's mother is actress Judy Levitt Koenig, who married Walter in 1965, when Star Trek was still on the air. She later had small roles in several of Walter's projects, including the movies Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), and Star Trek: Generations (1994). She also appeared with her husband in two episodes of '90s sci-fi series Babylon 5.
In February 2010, Andrew Koenig went missing, and his body was later discovered in a nearby park. His father stated that he had left evidence of depression, and the death was considered a suicide.
