Subspace relay stations were structures designed to relay 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.

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")

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")

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")
