Pulaski was a kind of throw back to McCoy. I liked that about her character. Plus I liked the tie-in with having an actress who was tied to the original series. I would have liked her to have had another couple of seasons to grow.
It would have been even better if she actually played Dr. Munhal
in TNG. She could have been 110 years old in TNG season two. They could have made it a point to celebrate her birthday and Riker could have talked Data into making some crazy joke about her age, to get her back for her constant jibes.
I think writers missed a great opportunity.
I wouldn't have had any objection if she had been the same character.
Now that I think about it, I can't believe Gene missed the train on that one. It would have showed off how humans have advanced in medicine. I know we've seen McCoy at 130 or whatever, but that was too brief.
