Subspace was the medium used for long-range communications such as subspace radio and subspace transponders. It was a distinct dimension from realspace, like hyperspace and otherspace.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

In Star Trek, subspace is both the primary form of radio communication used by Starfleet, and the analogue to hyperspace, allowing faster-than-light travel. Messages sent through subspace can bypass the physical light-speed limitations of real space, allowing for near-instantaneous communication in the Star Trek universe.

Subspace also appears in the Stargate series as the analogue to the hyperspace dimension. Subspace has been seen as an element of faster-than-light travel on a number of occasions.
