I've removed most of the infringing examples, but there's one category I didn't really touch, when a pure sci-fi series like Star Trek uses a plot similar to a story from a non-sci-fi source. IE, saying the Battlestar Galactica episode "The Magnificent Warriors" is "The Magnificent Seven" in Space. This doesn't seem like it fits the trope of Recycled IN SPACE!, at least not fitting the definition of the trope in the top trope page. Any agreements/disagreements?

See the "archived discussion" for reasoning of the changes I am making. This trope is currently a mess, and many contributers haven't read the overview of the trope and are putting tons of examples that do not fit the trope. The anime section is one I can't touch (I just don't know enough about the subject to determine whether something is a valid example or not). I just removed about 2/3s of the Western Animation examples and will be doing the same for the other sections.
