How frightening! Dr Crusher has been told that the Universe is collapsing!

Sometimes I still catch these old Star Treks on Sundays, and they’re always watchable.

5ft8 peak and 5ft7.5 now. πŸ›ΈπŸ‘½πŸ›°

My guess is a solid 5'8" peak to 5'7.5ish" today, but at least 5'7.25".

Rob, what happened to the photos with Josh? Why'd they get removed?

Could give her 5’8” peak.

Gates was great during the photoshoot with kids, they really took something away which is cool. Had a decent heel here.

You guys that say she's taller, look at the eye level. It's clear she has extra hair and is tilting head upwards
Danimal said on 22/Aug/14
The top of her head is both above yours Rob, as well as above Jenny's.
Editor Rob
she has an extra half inch of hair at her crown than me...

hmm rob she actually looks a bit taller than you two here, meaning she should be a bit over 5ft 7? or was she standing with better posture?
Editor Rob
I don't think she looked taller

She did cheorography work for The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
Trent said on 17/Jan/13
She looks the same as Rob, who is 5'8 and 1/8. She has 1 - 1.25 footwear advantage. Minus that and you get 5'7. So she is as listed.
Byron T. said on 1/Jan/13
5'7'' seems about right for Dr. Crusher. She's usually listed as being 5'8'' and could've well been that height at her peak.
J.Lee said on 15/Dec/12
Rob, hair counts for height?
Editor Rob
no, but it certainly can fool people.
J.Lee said on 10/Dec/12
Rob are your eyes and nose higher? But she is still as tall as you?
Editor Rob
people can tilt head up or down a little and raise eyes up/down a small fraction, it happens a lot in photos...but remember she doesn't have as little hair as me...
J.Lee said on 30/Nov/12
Rob aren't u taller in the photo still?
Editor Rob
i think she looked around 5ft 8, but of course she had more heel
runt said on 29/Nov/12
63 and still a looker!

She was usually wearing boots with small heels in the series. In one episode (The Big Goodbye), she dressed up in '40s gangster fashion, and wore impressive heels, around 3.5 inches, and looked taller than Patrick Stewart, who had some lifts in most episodes. She's a strong 5'8".
TruebloodFan said on 22/May/11
she looks 5ft9 at least.
guyfrommars said on 28/May/09
In the Star Trek episode "The Big Goodbye" she is wearing 3-inch heels and looks taller than Stewart.
Genny said on 21/Sep/07
Saw her at several conventions and agree with that estimate.
Anonymous said on 15/Mar/07
on the next generation she looked as tall or taller than patrick stewart, but i guess she was wearing heels.
