Subspace relay stations are structures designed to relay subspace communications. Organizations and species including the Hirogen, the Dominion and the Federation use subspace relay stations as part of networks for communication purposes. These stations can 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 is enough to sustain such a station. (TNG: "Who Watches The Watchers")
