... was killed off in season 1's episode SOE? I mean - no, duh, the black slime thing killed her But did Deneise Crosby had to undergo surgery or something? I know. I can't spell her name for crap but I'm sure you guys know who I'm talking about. She was such an interesting character and I would've loved to have seen her in later seasons of the show. At least Crosby got to reprise her role in AGT. Granted, I wasn't too crazy about the series finale and thought such an interesting series deserved a better finale, it's nice to see she comes back (well, not really since it was a flashback scene). Speaking of which, was there a significant reason that other lady who played Doctor Pulaski had to leave TNG? BTW - I'm new to the boards and this is my first post!
