If we're all honest, the women in TOS and TNG were dull window dressing and calling them characters seems like an insult to the concept.
Wanna make it clear I'm talking about the regulars. Ro Laren is a great character and better than any of the regular TOS/TNG women. Though I do like Pulaski and much prefer her to Crusher.
I'd task any Jadzia hater to name a better regular female character in any other Trek show. It just aint cricket.
