When going into hyperspace for the first time, Akton gives the probabilities of various catastrophes happening to the ship - 40% total disintegration, 30% molecular ignition, 20% gamma contamination - from which Stella concludes that they have a 10% chance of survival. It has been thought by some that this is an error: if these are independent events then the overall probability would be calculated by multiplying the probabilities of surviving each one, which would be 60% x 70% x 80%, giving 33.6%. However, there's no reason to suppose that the events are independent; in fact that would be a very unnatural interpretation of Akton's statement. It's more likely that he's stating the absolute probabilities that the ship will in fact be destroyed by each catastrophe - in which case each figure already presumes that the other two catastrophes don't occur, and the probabilities are independent. (And even if not, the error could be Stella's, not the filmmakers'.) See more
