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.
Dr Pulaski? Are u kidding me? She was forgettable..
Paul Winfield should've played the Doctor.
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.
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.
I voted Crusher
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.
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.
I didn't like either of 'em.
My girl Bev, of course. I like Pulaski, too, but Beverly's the one for me.
I don't know I voted for Crusher. I guess because Her relationships with the others can be uncomfortable.
I liked Pulsaki. Someone who could tell the Captain what she thinks and also, the part I love most, is openly criticize the Prime Directive, which was absurd by the time of TNG, like in Pen Pals and so on.
You pretty much said all that I was thinking.
She was not a bad looking woman during the 1980's, either, though the Rue McCallahan hair that a lot of woman over 35 had in those days had to go. Plus in "When Silence Has Lease", which is one of my favorite episodes, she was the only one, with exception to Worf's willing to take the chance of not being on Negelem's death list, I think, who had the most realistic reaction to Picard's choice of blowing up the ship, bluff or no bluff.
It would have been nice to catch up with Pulaski at some point later in the series. Was there ever anything mentioned about where she had gone after leaving the Enterprise?
