I found her character to be a bit stand-offish for my liking which seemed to jar with the team based ethos of TNG. I suppose it highlighted the togetherness of the crew and she also showed a different opinion on the sentience of Data. She wasn't my favourite character but i did enjoy the friction that the introduction of her character caused.

They corrected a major problem in TNG when they ditched Crusher in favour of the far superior Pulaski.

Pulaski would have been a character who could stand up to Picard.

They had no intention of developing the Beverely/Picard relationship so it was pointless to keep Dr Crusher on the show.

Sadly they undid their good work and brought Crusher BACK.

She always looked about middle aged to me. (Probably around 35-40 when the show began which means that she would have been early to mid twenties when Wesley was born. Makes sense.

Yes. But she wasn't a bad short term character - I mean, she was a reasonably well drawn character and she had some personality, as well as a journey especially in her understanding of Data. (Could she have been more ignorant of him at the beginning?

Now about Crusher and Picard; that really makes me think. I remember that in the first two seasons, they truly did intend to develop the relationship, or at least develop the mystery therein. Remember the time when Crusher was kidnapped by that romantic terrorist, Picard came to rescue her, and they had that talk, or were about to? "You know Jean-Luc, there are things I've never told you... things I've wanted you to know. You see...." *diversion ambush* It's like they ditched the idea half-way through. Thoughts on this one?

I agree she was an okay short term character, but she really wouldnt have worked for the other 5 years for the reasons mentioned (racist towards androids, didnt really fit in, too much like picard and mccoy, etc)

Good actress, abrasive character. Maybe it's because I already had a preconceived notion of what 1701-D's doctor 'should' be like after seeing Crusher for the 1st season. She just didn't fit.

I liked Pulaski. I wish she had made some cameo appearances later in the series.
