After thirteen years as THE source for Star Trek news and a gathering point for fans of the franchise, Startrek.com was given the axe:
Goodbye from the STARTREK.COM Team
Sadly, we must report that CBS Interactive organization is being restructured, and the production team that brings you the STARTREK.COM site has been eliminated. Effective immediately.
We don't know the ultimate fate of this site, which has served millions of Star Trek fans for the last thirteen years.
If you have comments, please send them to editor @ startrek.com - we hope someone at CBS will read them.
Thank you for your loyal fandom over the years. It has been a pleasure to serve you.
Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning.
UPDATE - Looks like someone came in and erased the former production team's heartfelt goodbye and replaced it with some good old-fashioned marketspeak:
