 The Omega Directive - Memory Alpha
The computer informs her she is obligated to initiate the Omega Directive immediately - all other orders are rescinded.
It is reasonable to assume that the Borg discovered about the Omega Directive from Jean-Luc Picard / Locutus, and the other Captains assimilated at Wolf 359 and in the battle in the Battle of Sector 001.
The reason why Torres was not at the Omega briefing was due to Roxann Dawson going into labor during the shooting of the episode.

 Prime Directive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In real life, the creation of the Prime Directive is generally credited to Gene L. Coon, although is some contention as to whether science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon, who wrote of the Prime Directive in an unused script for the original series, actually came up with it first.
The Prime Directive closely mirrors the zoo hypothesis explanation for the Fermi paradox.
Sometimes the Directive is deliberately violated; circa stardate 2534.0 (2266), cultural observer and historian John Gill openly created a regime based on Nazi Germany on a primitive planet in a misguided effort to create a more benign version of the original.

The scientists were able to synthesize a single Omega molecule but only for a fraction of a second before it destabilised, destroying the research center and killing all 127 scientists.
Starfleet's reasoning is since Omega is believed to be the most powerful substance known to exist, information of it should not fall into the wrong hands.
When an Omega molecule is encountered, all other priorities are to be rescinded and Starfleet is to be informed of the discovery.

Omega is the most powerful substance known to the Federation; a single molecule contains the same energy as an entire warp core.
Such is Omega´s nature, and potential catastrophe, Janeway´s standing orders state that should she ever encounter Omega, she is to isolate it, and then destroy it at any cost.
The Federation would seek to destroy Omega because of its huge threat ot life, but the Borg instead attempted to harness its colossal power for their own means: this resulted in the destruction of 29 vessels, and 600 000 Borg drones.

 Omega Directive - Memory Alpha
The Omega Directive (denoted Ω) is a classified Starfleet general order requiring the Captain of a starship to notify Starfleet Command immediately upon detection of an Omega molecule.
The Omega Directive was deemed necessary because of the extreme power and the threat to interstellar civilization posed by even a single molecule.
Although the Directive was adapted to meet the specialized needs of a ship far from Starfleet, the molecules were destroyed as ordered, even naturally stabilizing just prior to their destruction.

 The Omega Directive
I thnik she meant to say that the Omega directive took precedence "for the duration of the mission", but when I heard it it sounded like she said "dictation" instead of "duration." It might have been my TV though...
In addition, the AOTW apparenlty has no prime directive, since they're conducting their experiments in a system containing a planet with a pre-warp civilization (I never got the impression that they were one in the same), with possible catastrophic results.
Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, and I KNOW that the Greek alphabet is used quite a bit in the Star Trek universe.

 The Omega Directive
Was the "omega meson" that the dictionary described the same omega that Janeway and Company battled in "The Omega Directive?" Of that I'm not so sure.
The fact that 600,000 drones were "sacrificed" in the attempt to synthesize the molecule and that their deaths were considered "irrelevant" by Seven not only showed the importance of the molecule to the Borg, but the Borg's wanton disregard for life, even that of their own kind.
It implied that the omega directive was the exact opposite of the prime directive in every way, which became evident later in the episode.

 On a Wagon Train to Afghanistan
Part V concludes that the proper and modern understanding of the Prime Directive dictates that the value of cultural autonomy must be balanced with the inevitability of cultural interference and transformation.
The Prime Directive operates both to ensure respect for the mores of savvy, star-traveling cultures and to protect "primitive," planet- bound cultures from the revelation that they are not alone in the universe.
Whether the Prime Directive is the bright-line rule introduced in the original series, prohibiting significant contact with pre-warp cultures, or the fuzzy rule that emerged in TNG, prohibiting interference in societies' domestic affairs, one should not be left with the mistaken impression that the Prime Directive is uniformly observed.

She briefs the senior staff on Omega, in a scene that shows just how apt a name "Omega" (i.e., "the end") truly is. I would, however, like to ask why B'Elanna--the chief engineer, no less--wasn't in on the briefing about Omega.
The first is a moment when she appeals to Chakotay as a spiritual man. In a scene where she describes a very personal belief of Omega's "perfection," we see that the Borg's opinion of Omega borders on the deistic, and realize that the destruction of Omega, if necessary, will be a personal tragedy for her.
After all, the only reason Omega experiments aren't conducted in the Federation is because the Federation willingly decided to *destroy* all such knowledge pertaining to Omega in the interests of safety.

 [Voyager] "The Killing Game Pt. 1" Mission Log
The destructive power of the Omega Particle was so great that Starfleet decided to destroy it, keep its existence secret and create the Omega Directive--whenever this substance is discovered, Starfleet is obligated to destroy it and any related research material; this order even overrides the Prime Directive.
Obviously, to keep the existence of Omega a secret, the only way Starfleet officers were made aware of the Omega Directive is when their ship's sensors detect it or traces of its effects (upon which the ship goes into "Omega Mode" and fills the captain in).
Janeway sets out to locate the source of the shockwave and destroy the Omega device/research (or what remains of it) that was responsible.

Omega particles are presumed to be artificially generated by aliens and is a very unstable particle that can serve as a virtually inexhaustable power source.
Thus, after failed Federation experiments, it is ordered that it be destroyed by any Starfleet vessel that encounters it, even to the expense of abandoning the prime directive.

 The Omega Directive
As Janeway tells Tuvok that this is a part of the final frontier that wasn't meant to be crossed, Seven tells Chakotay that she has a plan to neutralize and stabilize the omega particles, which the Borg consider perfection; it's a spiritual quest for her.
The Omega Directive isn't even worth taking seriously as a directive, though it sure would have been interesting to see it on TNG - scientific assassination teams swarming the Enterprise, with Picard making demands for science and reason.
"The Omega Glory" was a better episode than "The Omega Directive." Janeway reciting the Preamble to the Constitution to Seven would have been more inspiring than the pat speech we got at the end.

She could've been referring to the assimilation of the "useful scientific data" or the creation of the molecule, after all, as opposed to the simple mythological reference to a sky-burning substance.
However, the most straightforward interpretation is that the assimilation of 262 and their first inkling of Omega was in 2145.
We know, for instance, that as late as the 2130's the Borg were still assimilating some of their basic technologies (as viewed from the 24th Century perspective) from more advanced races.
