In the real world, there are very few algorithms that do not involve recursion. This is the most prominent example of attempting to use technical speak solely for its effect on the lay audience.

This has nothing to do with recursive algorithms in the Star Trek, so I don't believe it really belongs here. --From Andoria with Love 11:23, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Rewrote article Edit

I rewrote this article a couple of weeks ago, and used a simple, clear example to explain recursion. I have a degree in Computer Science, so everyone can trust my definition here.--Sheliakcorp talk 03:47, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
