And Star Wars goes to the Grid again

Remember that post I made several months ago, where Star Wars the Old Republic rolled out an event with three armors that looks straight out of the Grid (In Jet blue, Paige red, and Uprising Blue/white)? And the big ship that looked like a lost level of Tron 2.0 with all the silver lines and neon? Or the fact one of the bosses renders blasters and lightsabers useless, so you're fighting a big robot with a blue deadly disc?
Yeah, they're at it again. I'm playing last night and get invited to a Operation (8 or 16 man raid) called Terror from Beyond. This is the second to last boss:
Since the print is too small to read: The boss you are fighting is called Master Control Program (I'm not kidding). And the adds he's spawning? The smaller ones are called "Recognizers" and the BIG ones later are called "Rectifiers" (I'm NOT kidding)
Queue a bunch of Aussies on Teamspeak hearing me going "Seriously?!"
It's an entire universe in there, one we created, but it's beyond us now. Really. It's outgrown us. You know, every time you shut off your computer...do you know what you're doing? Have you ever reformatted a hard drive? Deleted old software? Destroyed an entire universe?"
