No need to add "The Skywalker Saga" on to the titles. Movies that are part of the main thread keep their "Episode $n" titles, and spin-offs get their own titles. Worked for X-Men (the quality of that series notwithstanding) which had X-Men {1,2,3} (spanning the Xavier vs Magneto stories), Origins and First Class (prequels), and the upcoming Wolverine and Days of Future Past.

Funny; my professor just told a networking class recently when discussing vulnerability scanners that it was seriously unethical to scan a system without permission - it would be like walking through a parking lot and checking which cars are unlocked. I think most people would agree with him. This project might have good intentions, trying to encourage the sysadmins to tighten up their security, but I think there's a better way to do it than public shaming.
