Star Trek is going to brand new lengths for charity. In a week's time from now, on April 20, 2024, the gang from Star Trek will come together with other stars of Hollywood for charity. Todd Stashwick will serve as the Dungeon Master for an intensive game of Dungeons and Dragons that will include some of the most recognizable stars of Star Trek and sci-fi as a whole.

Stashwick, of course, played Captain Liam Shat on Star Trek: Picard's third and final season and earned rave reviews for his performance. He was a major highlight for the season and endured himself immensely to the Star Trek faithful. So it makes all the sense in the world for him to lead this D&D campaign as the Dungeon Master, with his star the brightest it's ever been.

He isn't the only one from Star Trek joining him, however. Jonathan Frakes, who played William Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Picard, will also be part of the show, as will Michelle Hurd, who played Raffi Musiker in Picard. No Star Trek-nerd-fest will be complete without Wil Wheaton, a major player on The Next Generation, and a brief cameo appearance on Picard as Wesley Crusher. So clearly the Star Trek faithful are going to be well represented.

That's not all, however, as Deborah Ann Woll, who played Karen Page in the Netflix/Marvel series Daredevil will also be in attendance. With this being a heavy Star Trek-focused event, it wouldn't be surprising to see Woll announce a new Star Trek project in the coming months.

All proceeds for the stream will go to the Pablove Foundation, which is an organization that invests in cancer research that isn't as supported financially as others. Due to the charitable status of the stream, it's being reported that a fan will join the table, having donated $7,600 of their own money to join the table and game, according to PC Gamer.

If you didn't get a seat, that doesn't mean you're out of luck to enjoy the adventure. The game will take place as mentioned before on April 20, 2024, at 8 PM ET. Go to the Twitch channel, Mini Terrain Domain.
