1963 doesn't explain why Dr. Crusher is described has having a "strip queen" figure in the 1st season TNG writer's guide.
AFAIK, the "strip-queen figure" reference appears only in the description of the Captain's Yeoman in the original series outline from 1964.

Anyway, maybe GR liked strip queens.
Picard "cannot help noticing that Beverly Crusher's natural walk resembles that of a striptease queen."
I stand corrected.

GR must have really liked striptease queens.

I read somewhere that the reason Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher) left TNG for two years, 1988-89, was that she was being sexually harassed by an unnamed executive, and it got so bad she had to quit the show.

Her return seems to coincide with GR's period of severely declining health and total lack of involvement with TNG (which was kept quiet, but known to insiders). That, plus GR's tragic history with Grace Lee Whitney and his general rep as a "sex fiend" (Alexander Courage's phrase), makes me wonder if he was McFadden's tormentor.

I think you're conflating several stories there, Zap.

It's probably safe to say that Gene went to a lot of strip clubs.
This is turning into a Mad Men episode.

Which reminds me that TOS was part of a storyline in a Mad Men episode from a few seasons back.

Yep. Further research implicates early-TNG producer Maurice Hurley as McFadden's nemesis. My perfectly sensible suspicion of GR didn't pan out in this case.
