Re: Grace Whitney (Rand) and Gates McFadden (Crusher) mistreated?

IIRC, Gates McFadden took maternity leave. The in-universe story was that Dr. Crusher took over ST Medical. I always liked Pulaski better than Crusher. She was a good foil for Picard and, IMO, made the show much more interesting. From what I remember, the Pulaski character was never meant to be permanent, hence her ultimate sacrifice at the end of season 2.
