The gravitational wavicles can be frequency modulated just as are electronic wavicles. Thus, subspace is divided into various frequencies in a similar fashion as Normal-Space. Various sections of frequencies have been set aside for private, commercial, and military usage. In particular, a universally agreed upon section of frequencies has been reserved as ’Hailing Frequencies”. These are off-limits except to vessels making initial contact with other ships or planetary bases.
As well, a distinct band of frequencies has been reserved as the “Distress Frequencies”. Spacecraft in jeopardy, planets facing catastrophe, and Recorder Marker Buoys all use these frequencies. The entire band is constantly by the Communications Duty Officer aboard starships and at star bases. Other frequencies bands include:
- Private Citizens
- Private News
- Spacecraft Control
- Starfleet Operations
