The current game on mtrek.com is proudly powered by the JavaTrek game engine, which was originally written by Joe Hopkinson and Jay Ashworth.
Without their contributions, MTrek would not be available for us to play in any form. THANK YOU Joe and Jay!
JavaTrek (Jtrek) is open source and can be downloaded for free at GitHub or sourceforge. If you’re interesting in starting your own server, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can probably help you out if you run into any snags.
The mtrek.com domain name has been registered to a long-time player since 2012. Previously, (in the 1990’s and 2000’s) the domain name belonged to Chuck L. Peterson. He was the original author of Multi-Trek, the game upon which JavaTrek was based. mtrek.com is the domain that served CLP’s version of the game for several years.
All of the software powering the mtrek.com server is free and open source, including but not limited to: (LAMP stack – Linux Ubuntu Server, Apache, MySQL, php) the JavaTrek engine, WordPress software, and open source plugins and theme elements.
