In season 2
of Star Trek: The Next Generation
, the actress Gates McFadden
, who played Dr. Beverly Crusher
, became pregnant and a one-season replacement was needed. Diana Muldaur
, who played a one-episode character on ToS
, was called up. She played her role with a lot of... bile
, I think would be the best way to describe it. No one
has ever said anything positive about Dr. Katherine Pulaski
. Her character apparently got a crush on Commander Riker
's dad Kyle Riker
at some point in the past.
