Dr. Pulaski made the data interesting again.
no doubt data TNGThe purest expression of all that everyone loves Star Trek. Exploring the human condition through science fiction Travel Everything. But just as the concept of a real-life humanoid robot is absurd, we tend to take robots for granted in science fiction.
If your data is a real person and you’ve never met a sentient android, it would be nice to know him. that jump TNG It’s not made with data to convince us that it’s artificial. Somehow it was given. think the data isn’t want What was considered artificial made him attractive. but because TNG The crew immediately embraced all of this. It could be argued that some of the story potential of the data was not actually mined in season 1.
Since Pulaski, unlike the rest of the crew, did not immediately accept Data’s basic idea, everything changed. In her first episode, “The Child,” Pulaski opposes Data comforting Troy during childbirth, telling Data that Troy doesn’t want a “cold tech touch”. Troi is of course against it, and it’s good that Data holds hands during the delivery. In the same episode, Pulaski mispronounces Data’s name as “DA-TAH” instead of “DAY-TAH”. This leads to Data’s classic answer. “One is my name and the other is not.” Pulaski led Data to basic Data-ness to create a foil for the character.
Some might say it’s the best data episode. always It’s “Measures of a Man”, set in season 2. In this episode, Pulaski is pretty friendly to Data, but it’s almost impossible to imagine this episode during the Crusher season. Even if the data accepts the possibility that Maddox would take him and dismantle me, he quotes Dr. Pulaski when speaking to Geordi, saying, “Life is rarely fair.” Through her initial resistance to data, Pulaski helped make data more human in certain ways that other characters could never do. She let the data stand on its own. She’s also the one who went to Holodeck with Data and Geordi to meet Moriarity in “Elementary, Dear Data.” So she is amazing.
For Wesley, Pulaski was better.
season 2 premiere next generation, ‘Child’ is a wild episode. Based on an unused script in the ill-fated 1970s Travel series Star Trek: Stage 2, the story must also convince the audience. three The main changes in the status quo: First, this episode introduces you to the basic concepts of Guinan (Woofi Goldberg) and Ten Forward. Second, in this episode, Dr. Introducing Pulaski as a crusher. And the third – which everyone seems to forget – this episode also had to figure out Wesley’s entire deal is that his mom isn’t on the air now. company.
Because Wil Wheaton’s Wesley was a big part of the spirit of the past TNG, it’s easy to forget just how much he became of himself in season 2. After “The Child,” Wesley company, he formalizes his role as a so-called acting in a way that the first season didn’t. Again, it’s hard to imagine what would happen the same way if his mother had been on the ship that year. Being not a real mother, Pulaski’s presence allowed Wesley’s personality to grow and change. No one will say that Season 1’s Wesley is better than Season 2’s Wesley. And that fact has to do with Pulaski.
