Oh, just wanted to add this:
Subspace Fields and a Warp Fields are the same thing...
This is what a Subspace Field, or Warp Field, does:
wrote: This has the physical effect of reducing the inertial mass of any object encompassed by the field
Just wanted to throw that in here...
Provide the relevant quotes from the episodes, and intelligent replies. I don't care about what M.A. says, and it seems everything is a sub-space something in Star Trek. I've seen too many flaws in M.A. articles to except them blindly, and your purposely unfinished replies are immature and trollish in a bad way.
So basically you are saying the writers of Star Trek are often inconsistent with how they use terms?
If you want to use M.A. as a source you should read this page: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Parallel_universe

Cold Fire wrote:TANIS: Because Suspiria is your future. She's part of us, and we're a part of her. All the Ocampa here are connected in a way that can't be put into words. And if you develop your abilities far enough, Suspiria will invite you to go with her to Exotia.
TANIS: A place the humanoids on this ship call a subspace layer. A place of pure thought, pure energy. A place of the mind. Think about it, Kes. When you're ready, Suspiria will embrace you. Goodnight.
Sub-Space is a place which would put it in contradiction to your claim, but let's be honest, and just except that they use the term Sub-Space as a catchall in Star Trek to the point it is meaningless.

O'BRIEN: They're jamming our signals by generating a rotating EM pulse.
SISKO: Can you clear it?
O'BRIEN: I'm trying.
Here we have an example of Sub-Space communications being jammed. Are we to believe that Electromagnetic radiation is a form of sub-space radiation?
Now back on topic

DATA: Can you recommend a way to counter the effect?
Q: Simple. Change the gravitational constant of the universe.
Q: Change the gravitational constant of the universe, thereby altering the mass of the asteroid.
LAFORGE: Redefine gravity? How am I supposed to do that?
They out right state they are messing with G in order to mess with the mass of the moon.
Remember Me wrote: TRAVELLER: Your species have very narrow perceptions of time and space and thought. When Beverly Crusher was caught in the static warp bubble, she created her own reality. Her thoughts at the precise moment she was trapped determined its shape and form.
Warp Fields can be used to create miniature universes. That means they can be used to tune the strength of the Universal Constants directly.

JACK: The fact is that the universe is going to stop expanding and it is going to collapse in on itself. We've got to do something before it's too late.
PATRICK: How much time do we have left?
JACK: Sixty trillion years, seventy at the most.
PATRICK: Oh, no.
(Lauren has Nog's biography on a PADD.)
LAUREN: Isn't Nog handsome?
JACK: What are you doing? We are running out of time!
JACK: Sarina, thank God! Nobody else around here ever listens to me.
SARINA: What is it, Jack? What's wrong?
JACK: There's too much matter. The universe is too heavy for its own good.
LAUREN: You need to lighten the load.
JACK: Yes, yes, yes, exactly. We have to find some way to decrease the mass.
SARINA: Of the entire universe?
JACK: That's the whole point.
SARINA: Is that possible?
PATRICK: That's what we're trying to figure out, Sarina.
LAUREN: What if we found a way to manipulate subspace?
JACK: Change the cosmological constant.
PATRICK: That would do the trick.
SARINA: You can't change the cosmological constant.
JACK: You know something, Sarina? We are trying to save existence as we know it, and all you can do is criticise!
SARINA: I'm sorry.
JACK: Thank you. Now, where were we?
PATRICK: Manipulating subspace.
JACK: Right. Right.
This is what they are talking about altering at the end of the scene: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmological_constant
Here we see Sub-Space and Warp fields can be used to alter universal Constants. That means that if they say they are going to alter a universal constant they mean they are going to alter a universal constant i would think.
On a related note:
Logically they would actually be increasing a ship's mass normally in Star Trek given how the FTL system is suppose to work, and how easily they create things like black holes and similar things.
