Not technically a sentence, but an actual conversation had when playing the Star Wars tabletop RPG about 12 years ago:
Me: I’m going to Force Choke the guards until they’re unconscious.
GM: Okay, you gain three dark side points.
Me: What? I didn’t kill them.
GM: Choke is a dark side power.
Me: Shouldn’t it depend on it’s use? I mean, in ROTJ Luke used Force Choke to choke the Gammorean guards when invading Jabba’s palace to rescue Han Solo. You saying Luke took dark side points there?
GM: Yes.
Me: That’s bullshit! Luke, the guy that refused to kill even when Obi-fucking-wan Kenobi and Yoda were telling him “Screw conversion! You can’t really be a jedi if you don’t kill Vader.”
GM: The book says dark side points so you get dark side points.
Me: Screw the book! Continuity is my co-pilot!

@Polychrome: you are clearly wrong. Blofeld is the head of a secret criminal organization that even MI6 was in fear of. Clearly he is a prime candidate for the Sinestro Corps.

Jaws (of Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me), on the other hand, is ID personified and would likely be consumed by Agent Orange. However, as evidenced by Moonraker, he would eventually be saved and redeemed by the Zamorrans in the name of the Swedish girl he meets.

“Tron’s first, then Terminator, then Transformers, then Matrix. Matrix can be seen as the endpoint of any ‘machines take over the earth’ scenario”

Get ready: Transformers is actually the endpoint!

Each successive franchise is dependent on the good guys losing in the previous one, which is where the alternate timelines come in. If Flynn and Tron fail, Master Control Program becomes the basis for Skynet. If the humans fail in Terminator, Skynet evolves into the Matrix. If the Matrix wins, eventually the machines develop Energon Cubes as an alternate power source and let the humans go extinct. The Earth becomes overrun with machinery and becomes Cybertron. Prolonged exposure to humans in the simulated world infects the machines, and they develop humanoid forms and personalities. (This explains some of the Transformers’ names; concepts like “bumblebees” and “jazz” have to originate *somewhere*.) Eventually, they split up into factions, the Autobots decide a great injustice has been done, and they *time travel* to a point before Master Control Program existed to try and prevent their future.

You’re missing two vital links.

Knight Industries are the ones who put the MCP in a vehicle, the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT).

But the program originally has an extra-terrestrial origin. It was reverse-engineered from a crashed alien fighter.

A cylon raider that that crashed in 1980.
