Otherworldly Craigslist ad seeks 'Star Trek' role-players

Hitting new levels of hilarity, a personal ad on the classified site asks for women to assist in "The Next Generation" role-playing, while promising that "nothing weird is going to happen."

The author of the Craigslist ad will most likely be wearing a Captain Picard uniform similar to this one auctioned by Christie's in 2006. Christie's Images Ltd. 2006

Those ladies who are fluent in Klingon but just can't seem to find a boyfriend are now in luck. Apparently, a certain someone is seeking women for "Star Trek" role-playing -- strictly "The Next Generation."

A recent Craigslist ad titled "Make It So" is making the joke rounds on Twitter today. The ad promises "no nudity, no touching" but asks for two to three women to get in character with the ad's author as he plays the "honorable" and "intellectual" Captain Picard.

Apparently Make It So has some serious issues with Captain Kirk, who he says "isn't half the Captain that Picard is" and is also a "fat chauvinist ladies man." He says that last time he tried to role-play "The Original Series," it was a "disaster." "There will be no mixing of eras," he proclaims.

Once he finds some suitable women that "know a lot about the show," the roleplaying can commence in his mom's garage where he has built a bridge and a small shuttlecraft. He will provide the scripts. The women have to have their own costumes and a phaser or VISOR would also be helpful.

What's in it for those lady callers? Maybe a lunch made by Make It So's mom and some blank doctor's prescriptions.

"Nothing weird is going to happen," he promises.
