Pipeline is a het bi-monthly letterzine with at least 26 issues. It won the 'Best Newsletter' Award at Tunnelcon #1. In 1989, editor Stephanie Wiltse explained that "half of her 800 or so subscribers "joined after the show was canceled because they were upset."[1]

In 1991, the editor of the Pipeline did gave a cable TV interview in which she and Angela Fernan discussed their plans to do a video version of the Pipeline. The interview can now be seen here. At least one issue of the Pipeline video newsletter may have been filmed.

In 1993 there were plans to publish "The Best of Pipeline, with Stephanie's most memorable interviews and articles, photos, artwork, and all that made Pipeline so special. The Helpers Network Gazette members would get a substantial discount on the price at which this book would be offered to non-members." [2] It is unclear if the compilation was ever published.

At least one fan has referenced Pipeline as a major conduit during the Beauty and the Beast Classic Wars.
"As for "Pipeline", it was my perception that this was a conduit for fuel [of arugments], each time it arrived in my mailbox, I felt like I'd been torched and left to burn."[1]
