Pavel Andreievich Chekov was a child prodigy and a Starfleet ensign for the Federation, assigned as a navigator to the USS Enterprise in 2258, at the age of 17. In addition, he was able to calculate the coordinates for beaming much faster than the computer, allowing him to personally beam Kirk and Sulu back aboard the Enterprise before they fell into the singularity, when the computer couldn't even lock on to them.

Originating from Russia, he spoke with a heavy Eastern European accent, which caused a problem when he had to voice input his authorization code "9-5-Victor-Victor-2". (His accent meant he had trouble correctly pronouncing Vs, which sounded like W's when he spoke them, hence "9-5-Wiktor-Wiktor-2.")

According to his dossier at the official Star Trek movie website, Chekov was top of his class in stellar cartography and transporter theory, an expert in advanced theoretical physics, and the youngest cadet in history to win the Starfleet Academy marathon.

Chekov displayed great intellectual brilliance when he was able to transport James T. Kirk and Hikaru Sulu back to the Enterprise as they were falling to Vulcan. Sadly, he did not have enough time to use the same technique to save Amanda Grayson, Spock's mother.

After the destruction of Vulcan, Chekov devised a way to beam Kirk and Commander Spock to the Narada, without Nero noticing the Enterprise being near his ship. Chekov's plan had the Enterprise drop out of warp near Titan, one of Saturn's moons, which hid the Enterprise from being detected, then had Montgomery Scott beam the two to the Narada. Chekov's plan was ultimately instrumental in saving Earth. After Earth was saved, Chekov served again as navigator under newly promoted Captain James T. Kirk and left with the crew to explore space. (Star Trek)

Chekov's age in 2258 (Star Trek) placed his birth in 2241, which is different from the birth of his prime universe counterpart in 2245 (according to TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?").
