As I liked McCoy, I also like Pulaski, but I just can't see the whole "I liked one but not the other" thing.

Bones is the original, Pulaski is just a weak echo.

I much prefer Crusher although Pulaski had some of the most interesting stories. And I admit to liking Muldaur's work in TOS.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

It would have been interesting to see Pulaski get a few more seasons. I voted for Pulaski mainly because she was the only main character to ever conflict with the rest of the crew.

Crusher was hot but very annoying.

'been saying it for almost 10 years now: Muldaur played a more believable head doctor. It's gotta be Pulaski.

This explains my vote, too. Conflict among the crew was sorely lacking in TNG, so I appreciate Pulaski shaking things up in that department.

I voted Crusher, but not by much.

I really wanted to see more Selar.

I wanted to see much more of Selar to, but in a different sense than you mean.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I prefered Pulaski.
She seemed more competent as a character/doctor and wasn't afraid to speak her mind.
Could have done away with her transporter phobia (oh yeah... she DID manage to get over it in the episode where she aged rapidly).


I couldn't care less about Mcfadden's 'looks'... I just didn't find her of too much relevance to be honest.

Re: Dr. Crusher or Pulaski

I despised Pulaski. I'd say she's my most disliked, but that would be an insult to Wesley Crusher and Tasha Yar.

Therefore my vote goes to Crusher by default, even though "in universe" she popped out Wesley.

Im amazed that this could even be a question. I always found Pulaski a terrible character and completely unlikable. Crusher all the way.

Hmm. We just did this topic a few months ago. Love the votes for Crusher because "she's hot".

Crusher as a character was bland and boring. McFadden as an actress is bland and boring.

Pulaski may be a copy of McCoy but then again McCoy wasn't the only "cranky" character the world has ever known. One could even say that DeForest was playing a copy of a cranky police pathologist when he played McCoy.

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.
So do I, and it's because her character was not the McCoy rip-off, and that she was better written (when they wrote for her), that my vote goes to Crusher.

However, I will admit that the passage of time has tempered my violent hatred of Pulaski to just dislike.
