Wow! Who could possibly believe Marina Sirtis of all people would be unprofessional and be rude and snarky to somebody/something else from Star Trek? She of constant "Deep Sleep Nine" comments...

Seriously, Sirtis is so unprofessional. She plays up to the fans and spouts some pretty unpleasant stuff at times. At least Muldaur had the professionalism - despite people like Sirtis - to be relatively nice about her time on Trek through various interviews across the years.
lol! Deep Sleep Nine I wish I was there for that one
Actually, Frakes at the Fan Expo was first to call it "Deep Throat Nine" when they all ganged up on Dorn for having no problems moving there (despite saying "never again" because of the make-up) once he saw the paycheck!

Sirtis is a bit snarky at times but I think some of it is just for laughs. Although she makes constant jokes about the other Star Trek shows, she's admitted in an interview with Star Trek.com that she thinks DS9 is the second best Trek series (behind TNG) and was the third best sci-fi show on the air in the 90s behind TNG and Babylon 5.

Glad there are other Muldaur/Pulaski fans. I find McFadden (infact most of TNG) dull.
I think TNG is an excellent show for Seasons 3-5 but I'd agree McFadden's performance and character was dull. Compared to McCoy and Bashir, Crusher was a blank slate. There is no character there at all.

Pulaski was a big improvement.
I couldn't agree more. Dr. Crusher had two notes 1.) Ask Picard a question to get out some exposition and internal feelings, occasionally flirt with him and 2.) Heal the sick no matter where in the timeline, the Prime Directive, or anywhere else they may be. Dull and boring.

So you don't want a doctor who makes healing her patients her priority?

I just think what a missed opportunity it would have been to see Pulaski and Crusher match wits in Season 5's "Ethics".
Agree it would have been awesome, but they didn't want to upset eithers fans, so there would have been a bunch of unhappy ppl either way it went.......

Another Pulaski fan. "Ethics" was a sorely missed opportunity to put Crusher on her toes.

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

I never liked the fact Doctor Pulaski was constantly picking on Data.I always thought her character was a jerk.I know that's way the writers wrote the character was supposed to be like Doctor MCoy ,It didn't work out that way. I never did like Pulaski.I was glad when they got rid of her after season 2.

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

I liked Dr. Pulaski. She took no bullshit and as for picking on Data, that didn't last long. I honestly thought she brought a little needed conflict. I don't dislike Crusher, but it seemed like Pulaski had more character development in one season than Crusher did in six of them.

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.

Except she WASN'T "constantly" picking on Data... that arc was wrapped up in the first few episodes for the most part. In episodes like "Peak Performance" and "Measure of A Man" she was a Data fan.

I don't think that episode was a good fit for Pulaski. Pulaski wouldn't have been doing unethical experiments like that.

Yeah, she's a riot. A breath of fresh air in the notoriously stuffy environment of conventions. She don't take herself too seriously, and she's just happy to chitchat with people instead of lecturing them. Some fans have a dislike for her because she don't treat Star Trek as being "serious business". The same fan usually complain about "canon violations" and "disrespecting the franchise".

In trying to recreate the McCoy-Spock dynamic with Pulaski and Data, they forgot that Spock could give as good as he got with respect to McCoy. Data, though, was pretty much defenseless against Pulaski. Pulaski could snark at Data, and he had no comebacks like Spock did. That's why it didn't work.

It would appear first impressions go a long way. And she didn't seem to recover for many people.
First impressions are the most important.

I think many fans disliked her the moment she came aboard and didn't meet the Captain like protocol demanded, and instead made him come to see her in Ten Forward. Not a good way to start things off.
I think Troi's situation might have had a little something to do with the delay. Besides, it's kind of nice to see a character that doesn't do what all the other little sheep do all the time.

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

If Muldaur got more money it's because she had more TV experience than most of the actors on the show (except for LeVar Burton). And she earned it. She never portrayed Pulaski as anything but a class act and a formidable presence...which is what a CMO should be.

As far as being "friends" with Roddenberry, hey, the guy did fool around but there is not evidence to support he fooled around with Diana. Not every cheater cheats with every woman he meets.
