Airlock Alpha, formerly SyFy Portal, is an entertainment news website focusing on science-fiction, fantasy and comic book television series and films.


The site debuted August 13, 1998 as "Syfyman's World", later renamed "SyFy World". In 2000, SyFy World became part of Trek Nation, the parent network of TrekToday. In 2001, the site merged with the Star Trek Portal website and relaunched as "SyFy Portal".

On February 23, 2009 the site announced a rebranding under the new name of Airlock Alpha. No reason outside of a new marketing strategy was given for the name change at the time, but on March 16, 2009, SCI FI Channel announced that it was changing its name to Syfy,[1] and Airlock Alpha revealed that it had sold its former brand name to an undisclosed party a month earlier.[2]
