  • Subspace relays were platforms designed to receive subspace communications and relay them to other stations as part of a subspace relay network. They were a necessary component in interstellar communications due to the vast distances involved. By 2100, a network of subspace relay stations had been established throughout the Sol system, permitting real-time communications (or at least with acceptable delays).

abstract
  • Subspace relays were platforms designed to receive subspace communications and relay them to other stations as part of a subspace relay network. They were a necessary component in interstellar communications due to the vast distances involved. By 2100, a network of subspace relay stations had been established throughout the Sol system, permitting real-time communications (or at least with acceptable delays). (The Starfleet Museum) During the Dominion War, the Federation and Dominion fought over control of the subspace relay on AR-558 for several months. (DS9: "The Siege of AR-559")
  • A Subspace Relay is a satellite designed by the Tau'ri to act as a relay for interstellar and intergalactic subspace messages.
  • Organizations and species including the the Cardassians, the Dominion and the Federation used subspace relays as part of networks for communication purposes. (DS9: "Return to Grace", "The Search, Part I",TNG: "Conspiracy" , okudagram) Signals sent in the subspace realm traveled faster-than-light (FTL). Over vast distances, such signals eventually emerged into normal space, dropping to very slow light speed, which made interstellar communications very nearly impossible. Subspace relays solved this problem by receiving FTL subspace communications before they emerged into normal space and retransmitted them in subspace at higher energies, allowing the signal to travel further in subspace, and to arrive at its final destination much faster, than it could without the relay. (citation needed • [ edit]) Federation starships, themselves equipped with subspace transmitters, relied on a network of subspace relays to boost inter-starship communication over the vast distances of interstellar space. (TNG: "Legacy" ) In 2369, the Bajoran engineer Neela activated a short range subspace relay she previously placed in the security office aboard Deep Space 9. Combined with her creation, the program ANA, this was designed to help her escape after she assassinated Vedek Bareil Antos, after deactivating the promenade's weapon detectors. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets") In the 2370s, the Dominion had an unmanned subspace relay on Callinon VII which the Karemma were told by the Vorta to send messages to. The USS Defiant transported Jadzia Dax and Miles O'Brien to the subspace relay in 2371 to see where the messages were relayed to. They were detected and a shield was activated around the relay.
