Nick and Jenny join us for an in-depth look at Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), from the genesis of the character to directing “Genesis.” We discuss Crusher’s role as the moral center of the crew, her position as a leader and mentor, the care she gives her patients, and the gender politics on both the Enterprise and the Paramount lot.
Content note: transphobia.
