Turns out the staff of StarTrek.com has been beamed out of CBS (NYSE: CBS) Interactive … according to a post on the site, “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.” The accompanying photo shows a seven-person team. See our earlier report on CBS.com and CBSNews.com layoffs.
TrekMovie.com: “I certainly hope that CBS are not planning on treating Trek just like another one of their TV properties and folding it into CBS.COM, like they do for CSI for example. StarTrek.com has been around since the early days of the Internet over a decade ago (including some time on the MSN Network).” (The comment thread for this post was more than 200 messages, not all sympathetic, long as of Sunday evening.)
