Diana Muldaur was also on McCloud with Dennis Weaver one of my very favorite actors too. . She was one of may favorite actor.
In 1968, she famously appeared in the original Star Trek episodes “Return to Tomorrow” (as Science Officer Dr. Ann Mulhall), and in “Is There in Truth No Beauty?” as Dr. Miranda Jones. During this time, a friendship with creator Gene Roddenberry formed that led to him casting Muldaur in several other projects throughout his career: as Marg in the now cult classic television movie Planet Earth (1974) with John Saxon and as Dr. Katherine Pulaski in one season and 21 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1988-1989).
She was in so many TV episodes

Dennis Weaver and Diana Muldaur in McCloud.
McCloud was a crime series, with Dennis Weaver in the title role. The show aired on NBC from 1970 to 1977. In the pilot, Sam McCloud fell for newspaper writer Chris Coughlin, played by Diana Muldaur. Chris remained as Sam’s recurring love interest throughout the show, although she wasn’t the only one to fall for his charm. McCloud had more women than he knew what to do with, but somehow he always returned to Chris.
Diana was asked to be in every episode of McCloud, but turned down the offer. She wanted the freedom to accept or reject whatever job offer she got.
When Diana Muldaur enters the screen, you notice it. She is a true icon, and one of the most versatile actors you could ever see. She’s most famous for playing Rosalind Shays in L.A. Law. She’s also known for her roles in A Year in the Life, McCloud, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Born Free.
Apart from her more than ninety (!) TV roles, she’s also starred in feature films such as The Other, One More Train to Rob, McQ and The Lawyer. In the eighties, she was the president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Her strong TV characters are still being loved and hated, discussed and debated. When magazines list “The greatest moments in television history”, Rosalind Shay’s name usually turns up. Many critics and fans have called L.A. Law’s Rosalind “the greatest female character all times”. This website is a tribute to Diana Muldaur, Rosalind Shays and all the other characters Diana’s played.
