Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I prefer Crusher, but only because I found Pulaski to be infuriating at times.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

How original. I'm surprised nobody has come up with this poll before!

Crusher.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I must admit... that I'm startled by the huge outpouring of support for Pulaski. I really expected this poll to be imbalanced with Crusher taking 60%, Pulaski taking 30%, and the rest going to no preference.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I'm surprised too, but these polls are of course in no way scientific, and I think this is still a small sample of active members, that could easily be overrepresented by motivated supporters of one favorite.

I never cared for Pulaski's character although after watching season 2 a few times she has grown on me a bit but I definitely prefer Crusher.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

Crusher gets points for writhing around on a bed have sex with the guy in the candle.

But Pulaski was far, far more interesting. We only hated her at the time because she saw Data as nothing more that a machine and we all liked Data. By the seasons end though she had warmed to him and it would have been interesting to see how that relationship would have played out over time.

Plus, she drank tea with Worf.

She seemed to have a crush on Worf and he didn't seem repulsed by it, quite the opposite.

But Crusher was hot with brains, so that trumps Pulaski.

I'll take Pulaski over Crusher any day. But then that's because I base my preference on character, not on who may or may not be hot.
Agreed.


(isn't House just another version of McCoy?)

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I used to like Crusher better, mainly because Pulaski was mean to Data.
In retrospect I prefer Pulaski and wish they would have kept her, I think the only reason they didn't was because Diana Muldaur didn't want to sign on as a regular and wouldn't have been available for the first few episodes of season 3. What a stupid decision to let her go over that, they could have introduced a second recurring Doctor to fill in for Pulaski when Muldaur wasn't available or they could have simply not shown any Doctor at all for some episodes, it would have been perfectly fine, had their been missions where a Doctor was simply not necessary.

I prefer Crusher. Pulaski was okay, but I always saw her as McCoy with his Y-chromosone changed to X.

I liked her because she was mean to Data!
Which I think was a plan from the start of the season that she would start to become a fan of Data by the end. She sure sticks up for him in Peak Performance.

I like Peak Performance. It's one of my favorite second season episodes.

I also like Unnatural Selection, for the most part.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I prefer Dr. Crusher over Dr. Pulaski because I think I let my self judge Pulaski per-maturly over the fact that she initially saw Data as just a machine. Over the season, she did grow on me.

Ultimately I prefer Crusher as she seems like a doctor that you would want helping you, compassionate and caring of the patient- Pulaski just seemed cold hearted. Bones on the other hand, that type of mentality seems more fitting for a man.

If we based all of our characters likability we would have a Star Trek with young adults that think mainly of sex and action... oh wait, we got that from Abram's already- look at how that turned out. Yuck!
