This is a hard one. Gates Mcfadden really isn't a good actress and talks weird. When Yar died, Crusher's reaction was unrealistic. Still, Pulaski was mean to Data. I would have to say Pulaski, though.

Whoever voted Pulaski should be shot.  (Joke.)


Pulaski was GARBAGE. (Seriously.)  She ranks right alongside Wesley Crusher as my least favorite Trek characters.  Her personality was grating, and she was a worse than failed McCoy clone with zero charisma.


Referring to Data as (Daa-duh) irked me to no end.


It reminded me of somene I knew at school once, lol.  He referred to a classmate of ours as "Sure-el."  Her name was Cheryl.  (Pronounced Share-el.)


I corrected him, as I knew quite well how she pronounced her own name.  He then replied "either pronunciation is okay."


I was like, "Uhh, dude, actually only one way is okay.  The way she says it is the only correct way."


Dude actually tried to debate the topic.  Ludicrous.

Definitely Pulaski for me.  Crusher never really became a character, although she had some great episodes.  Diane Muldaur is a great actress, and her character was fascinating.  People who criticize her for being rude to Data, etc, confuse me -- don't they know that that was the setup for long-term character development, and that she would have abandoned those views soon?  Don't they know that's how Star Trek works?


Also, I would have loved to see a Picard-Pulaski romance develop.  The Picard-Crusher thing never worked for me.

I actually liked Pulaski.   I thought she treated  Data badly when she first met him but she soon learned Data's value.  She was kind to Deanna in 'The Child"  But Crusher was a part of the Enterprise's family.

I, and probably anyone else watching the show, realized the ham-fisted approach to the Pulaski/Data dynamic.  That made it less interesting, not more.


As for a Pulaski/Picard romance... I just vomited in my mouth a little.  Nasty.

I would trust Crusher more as a doctor than Pulaksi.  Bev was right there with the crew in relationship, team member, and command.

I just vomited all over this thread!


Why is there even a discussion about it? It's Beverly Crusher all the way.

my first love was a girl named beverly from south yorkshire, so i think you can tell which i voted for.


although she wasnt a doctor or a redhead, so maybe it doesnt make any sence? hmmmmm... does it matter if it makes sence?


ok I'll stop now.

I always thought that Crusher was the better character. She's not the best character, but she certainly is better than Pulaski.


Pulaski bores me. I never did understand the character and I was glad to see her leave. Huh. Of all the Doctor's on Star Trek, I've always felt that Pulaski was the worst.


Goodbye. I am gone.

I'm surprised someone picked Pulaski over Crusher. I mean Pulaski's attitude was just aweful and mean spirited. She was basically a female McCoy, but the ol' grouchy doctor charm didn't work with her at all.


Plus her ethics were weird. How can she learn about a group of humans carrying out genetic enhancement experiments and all but side with them, if we know that the Federation, humans in specific have a very stric negative view of it, what with the Eugenics Wars.
