You may ask what the hell is Incident at Beta 9?!? Many of us here were also wondering the same thing. When trying to find people to join the Basement Podcast if one of us can’t make it that week, we often let them pick the film we’ll be watching so it is interesting to them. Even if it leads to some truly bad films like when Seth picked a fan film,Star Trek Renegades. Surprisingly, everyone was available this week so the only fair way to do it was a wheel spin. While many picked films they have been wanting to see a few poisoned pills made it to the wheel.
So unfortunately for all involved, another Star Trek fan film made the list… I’ll let you guess who put it on the wheel. You can watch Incident at Beta 9 below before the podcast, but better yet hit play, put it on mute, and listen to us talk and bash it as you watch. It’s guaranteed to be more entertaining… though that’s not much of a high bar with this one.
Let us know what you think, or even what films should get the Films from the Basement treatment.
Also, a big basement shout-out to Eric Hutchinson for giving us permission to use a clip of his song “The Basement” as our intro. Be sure to check out his site erichutchinson.com and his various social media hot-spots for all his news and music.
