You mean Data's ability to shrug off blatant racism? Pulaski certainly never overcame it. She was still ripping into him for being a machine as late as Peak Performance.
I always thought what they were trying to do with that was to echo the Spock/Bones relationship...but sadly it went totally wrong and Pulaski comes across as downright rude most of the time. Iīm not sure if the problem is the writing itself, if Muldaur just canīt play "goodhearted ribbing" or both?
I dunno, it just always rubbed me as petty at best. Don't get me wrong, she was a breath of fresh air in that she wasn't drama free like the TNG crew so often is, but yeah... doesn't mean she was my favorite character. I would've liked seeing her back in a guest role now and again. Wesley and Yar both got their guest shots after they left. Heck, Muldar was technically in more episodes than Crosby was I think.
