Look, I prefer Doctor Crusher but you know what, I don’t hate Dr Pulaski. She was gruff and mean to Data sure but I liked the different vibe she brought to the show.
In fairness to the character she was also very clearly not just a Crusher replacement, she was very different.
I still don’t 100% understand why Crusher was dropped for a season apart from something dodgy going on behind the scenes but ultimately I’m glad she came back. But that wasn’t Pulaski’s fault and I still liked the character, a shame she never got to come back even for a cameo.
