'''Subspace'''' or '''Hyperspace''' are terms used in science fiction to describe certain forms of space that can do things impossible in regular space (see also GreenRocks).

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''HumanxCommonwealth'' stories feature both in the form of space-plus and space-minus. Space-plus is what ships travel through while space-minus is what communications travel through. Space-minus travel is faster than space-plus travel but any objects sent by space-minus get turned into soup. Later novels reveal that the {{Precursors}} figured out how to travel through space-minus and even more exotic things.

* Creator/DavidDrake's ''Literature/{{RCN}}'' series has the Matrix, a plane outside the universe packed with bubble universes with varying physical constants. Ships travel in the Matrix by using electrically charged sails that harness the single pan-universal force, a radiation that exists only in the Matrix, to transit between and among these bubble universes.
* The ''Literature/AlexisCarew'' series has darkspace, a plane overlaid on our own that is made up entirely of dark matter and features "shoals" and storms. Ships enter and exit darkspace at Lagrange points, then use sails to harness the natural flow of dark energy towards massive objects such as planetary systems. Travel is faster the further away from massive objects you are. It's also noted that nobody really understands the why of it, just how to harness the forces involved.

* In the ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' series it's called slipspace, but works exactly like any other hyperspace concept.
** Maybe not ''exactly''. Slipspace is described as a series of eleven dimensions of spacetime through which a ship can take wormhole-style 'shortcuts' to reach their destination. It's been described as taking the 'flat sheet used to represent space' idea with two points on opposite edges and crumpling that sheet into a ball, creating new extra spaces that allow less travel time ''if'' you have the tech to move your ships into & out of those spaces. It can also be used to transmit data and communications almost instantly. It's other uses ranged from [[spoiler:stasis to miniaturizing dyson spheres. It is hinted that there are actually several other dimensions, although they have not yet fully been explored.]]
** Slipspace also has a efficiency factor. The entry into Slipspace with human and Covenant drives are compared to a butcher knife and scalpel, respectively, with war-era UNSC drives going a little over 2 1/2 light-years per day and being horribly inaccurate both space- and time-wise for 'exits', while Covenant drives are accurate on an atomic level and can reach over 900 light-years per day; the [[{{Precursors}} Forerunners]], whom the Covenant (poorly) reverse-engineered their tech from, could travel ''much'' faster, reaching points clear outside the Milky Way Galaxy in just a few days.

* ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' has a ship that exists in and travels through "The Bleed"- a seemingly endless expanse of red void that lies between (and connects?) each and every dimension for [[DCcomics DC]] and {{Image}} comics, and possibly even {{Marvel}} and Creator/DarkHorseComics.

** In DavidWeber's ''Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes'' series there is Hyperspace, which is very fast but has no ability to redirect during flight, and Enchanach drive which is much slower, but allows for complex maneuvring.
