Nothing about featuring former and contemporary enemies, Japanese and Russians, in this letter.
Rumor has it that Chekov came about because the Soviet newspaper Pravda noted that there seemed to be no Russians in the future.

Chekov's character had more to do with the popularity of The Monkees than it did the Soviets.
Actually had more to do with the popularity of The Beatles which is why he had the mop top and was suppose to be British originally.
