Dr. Katherine Pulaski

This is a rare costume from TNG's second season Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Pulaski. Played by veteran Trek actress Diana Muldaur, she came aboard the Enterprise-D to replace Dr. Crusher, who apparently took a different assignment at Starfleet Medical. Diana Muldaur is unique in that she is the only TOS actress to take a leading role on another Trek series. Her TOS appearances occurred on "Return to Tomorrow" and "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"

This costume was designed specifically for Muldaur as on homage to her TOS work. You might notice that the tunic is reminiscent of the early skants, and Dr. Pulaski is the only character ever to wear this style of uniform.
