A fandom with an active Internet presence, it is one of the new breed of fandoms where participation in the fandom is spread across the Internet rather than a necessarily centralized listserve or singular forum.
On August 9, 2006, the first fanfic posted to The Eureka Public Library was Down the Road by Raine Wynd. The first slash to be posted in the fandom, All Bets Are Off by skypipe was posted on August 23, 2006 to Eureka Slash.
The fandom has a newsletter community called the Eureka Gazette.
The main slash pairing is Jack/Nathan, although Henry/Nathan is also popular as is Jack/Allison/Nathan.
In fanfic crossovers with other fandoms are common, most notably with the Marvel Cinematic Universe where it is often stated that Nathan is related to Tony Stark, with Buffy since Buffy had several examples of weird science, but sometimes because Felicia Day (Dr. Holly Marten) also played the Potential Slayer Vi, and with Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, usually because of Eureka's military and scientific role, but sometimes with the idea that Jack is related to Samantha Carter.
The removal of the character of Nathan Stark in the third season caused alarm across the fandom, with many fans shocked by the way Nathan apparently died. Support for Nathan's reappearance quickly developed with the Bring Stark Back Campaign, although the actor, Ed Quinn, was quoted by writer Eric Wallace  as saying that he wanted to leave.
