gr4cchus / Netrek


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!

Installation Instructions

Fedora Gnome Application Listing Workaround

Edit line 3 of /usr/share/applications/netrek-client-cow.desktop and change from "Exec=/usr/games/netrek-client-cow" to "Exec=/usr/bin/netrek-client-cow".


I recommend using the xp client from the official website and installing it in a vm for a more robust and functional client.
