3. Dr. Pulaski (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

Dr. Pulaski is a bit like the brussels sprouts of the Starfleet crew; you either love her or strongly dislike her. She stepped into the medbay with a swagger that could rival Kirk's, but somehow, she didn't quite click with the fans for a few good reasons. For starters, she had the unenviable task of replacing the beloved Dr. Crusher, which is a bit like stepping in for Santa Claus at a Christmas party when you're nothing like him. Fans were already attached to Crusher's warmth and compassion, so when Pulaski marched in with her no-nonsense attitude and a bedside manner as warm as ice, it was a tough pill to swallow.

On top of that, Pulaski’s interactions with the crew were, let’s say, less than smooth. She had a way of ruffling feathers that was award-worthy. Remember her dynamic with Data? She treated him more like a fancy toaster than a fellow crew member - not a great way to win hearts. Her old-school skepticism and her somewhat abrasive approach made her stick out like a sore thumb in a crew that prided itself on acceptance and understanding.

In a universe where inclusivity is key, Pulaski's character often seemed like she missed the memo. So, while she did have her moments of brilliance, she ended up being the character many loved to sigh heavily at.

Again, real potential here but her approach made it difficult to enjoy her overall character for so many fans.
