Star Trek’s John Billingsley is beaming down with The Companion, a community-oriented platform for sci-fi fans. They are thrilled to announce an upcoming event, ‘The Companion Thanksgiving Special’. This exclusive live stream event, scheduled for November 18th, 2023, aims to unite fans for a cause close to the stars’ hearts – supporting the Hollywood Food Coalition.
Fans will be graced by the presence of esteemed actors Michael Shanks, known for his role as Dr. Daniel Jackson in the acclaimed series ‘Stargate SG-1’, and John Billingsley, famous for playing Dr. Phlox on ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’. Their participation in the live stream signals a unique opportunity for fans to interact with their favourite stars while contributing to a vital charitable cause.
Star Trek’s John Billingsley Celebrates Thanksgiving!
The Companion’s Thanksgiving Special isn’t just an ordinary event; it’s a celebration of giving. Through this initiative, members who donate to the Hollywood Food Coalition will be honoured with a limited edition custom ‘patch’. Therefore, it symbolizes their support and the community’s collective effort to make a difference.
Additionally, for the most enthusiastic fans, The Companion offers an exclusive ‘Green Room’ session – an intimate 5-person, 15-minute Zoom call with either Michael Shanks ($250) or John Billingsley ($150). These sessions bring fans closer to their idols and contribute substantially to the charity.
However, for the ultimate fan experience, one can choose to donate $20,000, granting them a memorable dinner party in Los Angeles with John Billingsley!
The Companion also offers free access to the live stream event for those who sign up for The Companion’s free newsletter.

Star Trek’s John Billingsley said:
“You and up to three of your pals or spare husbands/wives (remember, I’m a Denobulan) are invited to attend a dinner party high up in the West Hollywood Hills at Dr Phil Phlox’s house, replete with nothing but Star Trek guests – actors, designers, writers, directors . . . and youze guys.
“Think cocktails first, overlooking the city; then a multi course al fresco candlelit meal under the stars, then a little bit of post-prandial unwinding in front of the outdoor fireplace. Mingle, laugh and nosh with some of your favorite Trek luminaries from some of your favorite shows.
“You have to get yourself to LA and put yourself up and make your way to my house via Uber or Lyft (you’ll probably get tootled on Rigelian ale, so don’t plan on driving), but once there you’ll have BUT ONE MISSION – to be the honored guest at a party of lovely Trek celebs who, the more they unwind, the more they tattle…
“You’ll go away happy, you’ll have made some new pals, you’ll have had a once in a lifetime experience if you’re a TREK fan, and most importantly: you’ll have helped out THE HOLLYWOOD FOOD COALITION, an amazing organization that does tons of great things to help people in need in and around Los Angeles.
“No expiry date, although I’m not getting any younger, so don’t take too long… I’ll arrange the party around your availability!”
