Where the Fans Go For The Inside Story
No clickbait and no ads, The Companion is an app for fans of the shows that matter, from Stargate and Star Trek to The X-Files and Farscape.

– Access to showrunners, creators, and the cast
– The geekiest deep dives and behind the scenes
– In-depth stories celebrating the power of fandom
– Invites to exclusive events and AMA livestreams
We’ve assembled a team of world-class researchers, writers, and artists to bring the ultimate coverage of our favourite stories, one franchise at a time.
Why The Companion
Science Fiction shows and films have the highest quality of storytelling and make huge innovative leaps in entertainment and yet it’s still often referred to as a niche. These are the stories that captivate our imaginations and spark our conversations and yet it often plays second fiddle to sports, music, and fashion.
We’re looking to change that by creating a new platform that features new insights and fresh perspectives from award-winning writers, academic researchers, and original stories from the cast and crew.
You’ll also find exclusive new article series and podcast shows that bring an exciting new take on your favorite franchises.
Making the stories you love even better
Our project is an ever-evolving digital companion. Each franchise will be covered in the form that best fits the story: written word, audio, infographics, and more.
In order to take you deeper, when we decide to cover a particular theme, we make a commitment to tell multiple stories covering it from all angles. Therefore, our first 3-month topic – Season 1 – will cover the stories that shaped us – the 90s.
We’ll cover stories untold anywhere else including Stargate, Terminator 2, and Jurassic Park. And of course, expect a few surprises.
No Clickbait. No Ads.
We really hate banner ads and we really, really hate annoying pop-up videos covering up our screens. It’s why we’ve created a clean app experience presented in the way the writers had always intended.
Beyond design, accessibility is also incredibly important with us and we’ve created accessibility options for everyone to enjoy.
