Names of parents[edit]

I'm curious as to where the names of her parents come from. -Branddobbe 22:18, Feb 19, 2004 (UTC)

I found them in the Star Trek Chronology. It says in there that they were shown on a computer screen for a moment in the TNG episode "Conundrum". -- Djinn112 22:56, Feb 19, 2004 (UTC)
Huh. OK. -Branddobbe 00:02, Feb 20, 2004 (UTC)

renamed[edit]

Can't this page be renamed in Beverly Crusher (Star Trek) ? is there an articles naming policy

I don't see why it should be. Is there someone else named Beverly Crusher that is more notable? -- Plutor 17:56, 31 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

I removed this section. "Quotes" is a bit vague -- certainly this isn't an exhaustive list of all her quotes. What're the criteria for inclusion? It looks like this might more aptly be called "Memorable" quotes or "WP:ILIKEIT quotes" -- but that's subjective/non-NPOV. "Notable" quotes would be more significant, but lacking a citation about what makes them memorable, that doesn't work either. Lastly, straight-up quotes should be over in Wikiquote. If someone wants to move them over there, by all means... --EEMeltonIV 11:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Shortened[edit]

Last time I read this artical, it was signifigantly longer than this. Who got rid of half the stuff? Alot of it was about her bio and relationships. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TwistedRed (talkcontribs) 02:11, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Slash[edit]

"In het slash fanfics, fans often pair Beverly Crusher with Jean-Luc Picard."

Um. Who ever wrote this doesb't know much about fan fiction terms. Slash means same-sex pairings. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.132.112.167 (talk) 03:49, 13 October 2007 (UTC)


>>Originally in the Trek fandom, "slash" denoted any romantic/sexual pairing. However, since at this stage "slash" is firmly considered to apply to same sex pairings, and since the "slash" page on wiki reflects this, I've changed the appropriate section of the entry. 89.125.85.190 02:45, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

Notable issues[edit]

  • Article's lead needs to be a summary of the article. The current lead includes trivia-type information that needs to be incorporated into the main article and then summarized in the lead.
  • Some good, real-world information is included, but it is unreferenced. There are some {{fact}} tags pointing to statements that need verifiable sources.
  • Current references need cleanup. Here's a guide: Wikipedia: Citing sources

Conflict of interest?[edit]

I looked through the edit history and don't see any usernames that are suspicious. What's the conflict of interest? -Mike Payne (T • C) 05:35, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

I am removing this COI tag. When editors add tags, they are supposed to explain on the talk page why. travb (talk) 04:18, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Can someone please re-write the 6th paragraph of the "Character Information" section[edit]

Come on, just read this...


"Beverly and the Enterprise captain, Jean-Luc Picard, used to know each other when Jack was alive, but after Jack's death, they fell out of touch, so it is the first time they see each other when the series starts, as Picard was good friends with Jack Crusher. Picard has been in love with her for some time, but he shielded his feelings very well from perceptive Beverly, so she had little idea of his infatuation with her. It is evident she returns his feelings for the first time during the show's run. As the series progresses, the two become closer, starting with the first season episode "The Naked Now". Their relationship is further developed in "Attached", when the two are linked telepathically. This leads them to discover that they do have feelings for each other. They decide somewhat hesitantly not to pursue these feelings, to save potentially harming their close friendship, and sensitive Beverly is fearful of rushing into another relationship. However, now that they have both acknowledged them, it seems likely that the issue will be addressed at some point in the characters' futures."


It's not written at all in a style befitting an encyclopedia (both in content and grammar). Too many run-on-sentences and fan bias descriptions.

Edited. I agree, that was way too in universe and non-encyclopaedic. Hope it reads better now. Josh 01:47, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
