The Luminoth Temple was an official forum created to promote Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, along with Athena Astronautics, Channel 51 and Orbis Labs. The forum was very private, and only those seventeen and older could join. In total there were 2,157 registered users.
Entrance to the site was only given to those who discovered the Orbis Labs username/password from Samantha Manus's last post, which had "channel" and "mind" bolded, those who discovered a Monster.com job listing, or adults who registered Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Visiting the site now shows a message saying that the Luminoth Temple has closed, with a picture of a Luminoth and a link to the N-Sider forums, also now defunct.
