Re: so THATS why some of the cast didn't like Diana Muldaur

People hate on Pulaski for her attitude toward Data. But you only easily accept Data as sentient because the show told you to and because he's a main character. If Data were introduced in a different context, you would just as easily accept it was ridiculous for him to be considered sentient.

Pulaski's position was completely reasonable from a neutral perspective. I'd have difficulty accepting a robot as sentient if I met one that seemed that way.
