In order to play Where No One Has Gone Before, you can use a number of methods to connect, including raw telnet.
However, due to the amount of information that the game throws at a player, we do not recommend using raw telnet to play WNOHGB. We have compiled a list of MUD Clients for your use, depending on the operating system you're using.
