The Homing Beacon was StarWars.com's free biweekly newsletter, sent out to subscribers via e-mail. It served as a supplement to the content found on the site. The first issue was released on January 27, 2000, lasting 358 issues in total with the final issue released on March 19, 2011. While early issues provided unique source information, later issues (post-issue #239) eventually moved to a purely advertising platform with no unique source articles.
