I'll assume you mean subspace as in what's referred to in Star Trek.

The simple answer is that I don't know, and I think I can generalize to say 
that we, as scientists, don't know, either. None of our current theories 
postulate the existence -- or even the need -- for a subspace. Also, the 
subspace as used in Star Trek is a vague and mysterious thing. So.... 
perhaps you can refine your question. What does subspace do? Why is it 
there? If you can answer those questions, perhaps we can help.  Write
back if you want to pursue this!
