A communication subroutine was a computer program that allowed Soong-type androids to express themselves.

In 2379, Data only activated the cognitive and communicative subroutines of B-4. When B-4 asked him why he was unable to move, Data explained what he had done, adding that it was because B-4 posed a danger to the USS Enterprise-E. (Star Trek Nemesis)
