Michael is not true blood to the family. He just happens to be a lookalike to Garthe after surgery. Wilton adopted him to carry on the good will of the Knight clan. Garthe betrayed and violated his father's purpose. So Michael is involuntarily brought in to help Wilton reach his goal.

Garthe and Jennifer have no actual relation to Michael. He is only given the name to be represented as a follower of Wilton's dream. Garthe probably considered Michael to be like a brother who kept him from getting everything he thought he rightfully deserved. But they are not truly kin to eachother.

Garthe's father, Wilton Knight, dies in the pilot. I don't know of what, but he dies.

I don't understand something here. Wilton Knight was this great man who wanted the world to be rid of all evil, yet his family was made up of nefarious people. Garthe is a worldwide criminal. Elizabeth is a traitorous fiend. And Jennifer is an arrogant witch trying to remove everybody. But I know she had a change of heart once realizing Michael was the exact opposite of her brother.

Why would Wilton's wife and son be so full of hatred when he himself thinks great things should be done for the world?

Generally, where there is a visionary, he/she is surrounded by those who are the direct and total opposite. In this case, Garthe and Jennifer got their cruddy side from their mother, most likely while Wilton was working his way through his visionary expeditions.

Question and I'm to lazy to look thru my tapes but, in KOTJ do they say were Jennifer Knight has been or what she's been doing. Cause we don't hear anything about her and then next thing you know she's with the FLAG Board of Director's and she's trying to shut it down.

You know I'm surprised Devon didn't become to full head of the foundation after Wilton's death, since Devon was Wilton's right hand man.

He basically was the Executive Director, so he was the full head of the Foundation. But as with all charitable Foundations, it had a board of directors so that no one person would have absolute power. It was also seemingly overseen by Knight Industries.

I am kind of confused. What is the difference between FLAG and Knight Industries?

FLAG is a division of Knight Industries that's sole purpose is to protect the innocent. Knight Industries is the main company, FLAG is a divison. Like Chevy is a division of General Motors.

I think of them as being a little more distinct... The Knight Foundation would be everything under the Knight umbrella, all of Wilton's creations. Knight Industries was a research division that made the high-tech toys (and possibly sold products to governments or companies for revenue.) FLAG was a separate division that worked on social change. We mostly just saw the small amount of FLAG projects that required someone to operate above the law.

That is what I thought.

Except that in effect, a non-profit doesn't generally oversee an Industries. It can happen, but in tax-benefits it is the other way around. A non-profit charitable organization is set up by an Industry either as a tax shelter or otherwise. Industry first, charity second.

^That's most likely how things happened with Wilton Knight, as well. He becomes filthy-stinkin'-rich from running Knight Industries, sets up the Knight Foundation for his philanthropic work, and toward the end, sets up FLAG as an organization within the Knight Foundation after getting ripped off by Cameron Zachary and Tanya Walker.

I just thought I would share this with you, hopefully the writers of the Knight Rider Legacy don't mind, but it is a little tidbit from their book about Knight Industries.

"Knight Industries was the parent company, and was divided into five branches.

1) The Fiscal Branch
2) The Knight Foundation
3) R & D Branch
4) The Medical Branch
5) The Legal Branch

Just a little bit of info there for fun. :) Thanks to the Knight Rider Legacy once again.
