Star Trek: Voyager

The Omega Directive - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When Janeway visits Seven as she works to destroy the Omega molecules in the chamber, Seven reports that 11% have been neutralized. They then have a 1 minute, 10 second discussion, and when it's over, Seven states that 18% of the molecules have now been neutralized. Janeway comments, while checking the computer screen, that at the current rate, "this could take hours". Actually, at the current rate, it will take less than 15 minutes. (00:38:20 - 00:39:30)

Correction: It's possible that the progress is not linear. As fewer molecules remain, it may become harder and slower to neutralize them. There are many situations where that happens in real life. For example, killing bacteria or filtering out impurities, where it's quick and easy to remove many, but very hard to remove them all.

The Omega Directive - S4-E21

Corrected entry: Seven of Nine has said before that the Borg only assimilate information, they do not create it on their own, ie. they do not research. But in this episode, she says that the Borg had sacrificed 27 cubes and 600,000 drones while researching the Omega Molecule.

Correction: Perhaps the 27 cubes and 600,000 drones were lost trying to assimilate the Omega Molecule or the technology required to create it. Or they assimilated the technology to create it, but lost all those ships and drones trying to make it. Either of those could be classified as "research" by the Borg.
