Hirogen relay station

A Hirogen relay station

Subspace relay station, or subspace relay booster station, was a facility designed to relay ("channel") subspace communications. Organizations and species including the Hirogen, the Dominion and the Federation used subspace relay stations as part of networks for communication purposes. These stations could be manned or unmanned, space- or planet-based. Relay stations could be manned by a small crew of as few as two officers. Federation stations were considered as outposts. (TNG: "Aquiel")

In the Treaty of Armens (2255), one of the provisions read, "Third party assistance may be requested from a Federation Starfleet vessel or a Sheliak Corporate spacecraft if the distance from the vessel to the respective homeworld is greater than five thousand (5.0e3×103) light years. UFP Standards Measurement Bureau Units. Assistance may also be requested if the vessel is less than 1,000 light years from a standard UFP subspace relay booster station." (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command", okudagram)

In the Federation, the performance of these stations was tested according to criteria established in STFL spec 0473/111243. If a station was not up to spec, it was repaired on site. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

In 2364, prior to stardate 41775, the Federation starships USS Aleo and USS White Sands tested the stations on the Rigel/Andor link. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

In 2371, a joint effort between the Federation and Cardassian scientists led to the creation of a relay station being built on the Gamma Quadrant side of the Bajoran wormhole to aid communications. (DS9: "Destiny")

A 4.2 gigawatt power generator was enough to sustain such a station. (TNG: "Who Watches The Watchers")

In 2374, the USS Voyager discovered several relay stations, parts of the Hirogen communications network. The stations used quantum singularity power sources. (VOY: "Hunters")
