Star Trek: Voyager

Scorpion (1) - S3-E26

Corrected entry: Both the Borg and Chakotay reference that it would take months for Voyager to cross Borg space. The Borg use trans-warp regularly, which is the method Voyager eventually arrives home at the end of the series. The Borg could have scooped up Voyager and had them not only on the other side of Borg space, but all the way home in less than a day. Janeway really missed an opportunity in her negotiations.

Correction: Janeway didn't know that the Borg had transwarp conduits that reached the Alpha Quadrant. Additionally, she would not want to encourage the Borg to send any ships towards Earth, since it would simply motivate them to invade. Janeway compromised - they would cross Borg space safely, and without leading to a Borg invasion of the Federation.

Yes she would have known the Borg had trans warp conduits to the Alpha Quadrant, as the Borg reached the Romulan Neutral Zone in TNG Season 1, the attack at Wolf 359 only a year after official first contact, and the rogue Borg were attacking Federation colonies in 2369, two years before Voyager was lost in the Badlands. Therefore, the Borg has a way to get to the Alpha Quadrant in very little time, which Janeway would know. Why the Borg didn't use the transwarp conduit that opened up right on earth's doorstep ("Endgame") is another question.

Scorpion (1) - S3-E26

Corrected entry: Seven of Nine says that she was assimilated 18 years before. No one from the Alpha Quadrant knew about the Borg at that time.

Correction: There were rumors about them. That's why her parents set out to try and find them and learn about them.

The El-Aurian refugees rescued in "Generations" were refugees from the Borg assimilating their world. Even for a race of listeners, some of them presumably spoke about what happened in the 80 years before the Enterprise-D encountered the Borg at J-25. It just wasn't given much importance at the time given that it was a very long way from Federation space. The Hansens dig out these old forgotten reports and decided to investigate.

Quotes

Shannon O'Donnel: 5:00am, December 27th, 2000. I'm in the great state of...Indiana, I think. I saw the world's largest ball of string this morning and the world's largest beefsteak tomato this afternoon. It was the size of a Volkswagen. The string, not the tomato.

Mistakes

When the Doctor begins to "fade" in the transporter room his mobile emitter fades with him. Since it's made of solid matter and is not a hologram, this shouldn't be possible.
