Re: If VI had featured Saavik instead of Valeris as the traitor

I seem to recall there were rumours of some talk about Chekov being the traitor.

But, the decision was made that such a radical step would have been roundly turned on by fandom, and such a backlash may have harmed the box office (I remember there was actually a campaign to boycott TSFS simply because the Enterprise was destroyed, so this would have certainly been a serious concern).

I could see Koenig relishing such a role though!
