The actresses who played Samantha and Naomi Wildman on Star Trek: Voyager, Nancy Hower and Scarlett Pomers, both have upcoming feature films and other new projects.

Hower, a Juilliard graduate whose film Memron, a mockumentary about the Enron scandal, was well-received at film festivals, has just had her improv series Ten Items or Less picked up by TBS. The series will likely begin airing in September 2005, according to The Unofficial Nancy Hower Homepage.

Hower will also sing on the soundtrack for the upcoming Jennifer Garner movie Catch and Release. She has traveled to Boulder, Colorado to film a role in the movie. When not working on performing, Hower is penning a series of forthcoming comic detective novels, The Tall Detective.

Hower's onscreen daughter, Pomers, also has a dual role acting and singing in an upcoming film. Scarlett's Web reports that in Sing Softly, Stella, Pomers will star as a fifteen-year-old, living with ex-punk rocker parents in suburbia, who plays in a garage rock band called Bombshell.

A performer since she was a toddler, Pomers created the original soundtrack for Sing Softly, Stella, writing and performing the songs. For the past several seasons she has appeared on Reba on the WB.
