Dr Pulaski on ST TNG

OK. As we all know, TNN has been airing TNG twice a night for the past month. Well,I have been watching it religiously.

Since I haven't seen much of seasons 2 and 3 since they first aired, I had all but forgotten about Dr. Crusher's replacement - Dr. Pulaski. Perhaps I had unconciously blocked her from my mind for all of these years, but I forgot how I really am not a fan of her character. She's rude and abrasive to Data, and really doesn't fit in with the crew that well.

I know that Dr. Crusher took a position at Starfleet Medical for those two years, but does anybody know the real story behind replacing Gates Mc Fadden with Diana Muldar?

TNG is one of my favorite shows, but it pains me every time that shrill little wrinkle of a "Doctor" comes on screen. I would so much rather have had Andrew Dice Clay play the Doctor in the second season than have to sit through Pulaski's slow talking nails-on-chalkboard voice every episode. Die, die, die Pulaski!

Actually, it was only for the second season. Dr. Crusher returned at the beginning of the third season.

I liked "Pulaski" (Muldar?) in the TOS. She is one of the few to be in both, and the only one I can think of that was a different character.

Mark Leonard (Sarek) played a Vulcan and a Romulan in TOS and a Klingon in the first movie and then Sarek again on Next Generation.

Not from a pure "geek" standpoint.

Exactly why I didn't like her, either. I HATED HATED HATED how she spoke to Data - no true interaction at all. An abrasive character all the way around - very unpleasant. I was thrilled when Crusher came back. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Yep. Menagerie was made from The Cage. (So as not to waste the money spent on the original pilot?)
