In 2367, the Chekov was destroyed during the Battle of Wolf 359. (TNG: "Best of Both Worlds, Part II"; Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet)
The ship was named after Pavel Chekov. As vessels, either wet-navy or starfaring, are rarely named after the living, it seems probable that Chekov was already dead in the Primeverse when this vessel was commissioned.
