Play Netrek on the big screen. This scaled-up client makes it easier to learn. Runs on Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows, using the same program.

Netrek is a multi-player battle simulation with a Star Trek theme. As a player, you captain starships to engage enemy vessels, bomb armies and invade planets in order to expand your team's space empire. The ultimate goal is to genocide the enemy race, but the carnage of battles along the way is ruthlessly fast paced and a lot of fun! This is the client Cow for Netrek.

Compared to the other clients, this client is a 1000x1000 pixel fixed scaling client, with detailed graphics, support for UDP and TCP, a tight event loop to minimise response times, and several innovative user interface features.

Lacks support for in-game player to player message display. Get involved, add messaging support, or at least write the blueprint.
