in or relating to hyperspace n.
In use in mathematics since at least the 1850s; this entry only shows examples corresponding to the SF use of hyperspace n.
We assume in some sense the existence of a hyper-space separating the closed spaces; hyper-spatial coördinates which mark their relative hyper-spatial positions.
Him an’ a couple other guys named Einstein an’ Planck fiddled around with hyper-spatial mechanics an’ discovered some interestin’ things.
With a drive that’s hyperspatial, through the parsecs you will race.
Engines and hyperspatial generator functioning erratically, and ship definitely off course, though navigation at present impossible.
In our own early days of spaceflight—before gravity control, hyperspatial travel and atomic motors made considerations of weight of little or no importance—vehicles had to be built as light as possible.
I’ve even managed to make hyperspatial contact with some minor official.
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was a high-density pre-baryogenesis singularity. Darkness lay over the deep and God moved upon the face of the hyperspatial matrix.

In the compilation of some entries, HDSF has drawn extensively on corresponding entries in OED.
