Wildman was born on planet Ekaris III in 2347 to Linette and James Wildman. She had one sibling, a sister named Nancy Wildman. Samantha entered Starfleet Academy already having a Xenobiology degree from the University of Ekaris. From 2368 to 2371, Samantha Wildman served as a student instructor at the academy. Her Midshipman assignment in 2368 was to Ktaria VII in order to study the jungle ecosystem there. She earned her Xenobiology doctorate in 2371, the same year that she graduated Starfleet Academy in the 88th percentile. She was immediately assigned as a sciences specialist aboard the USS Voyager. (ST video game: Starship Creator)
- Starship Creator indicates that Wildman served aboard the USS Florida. As she was assigned to Voyager directly after graduation from Starfleet Academy and the game was from a time when Voyager was still in the Delta Quadrant, it must be assumed the vessel from her midshipman cruise to Kataria VII.
She was married to a Ktarian named Greskrendtregk in 2369. Greskrendtregk and Samantha had been visiting Doctor Julian Bashir on Deep Space 9 in the hopes that he would be able to aid them in getting pregnant. The treatments were successful - Samantha was unknowingly pregnant when she left DS9 aboard Voyager in 2371. Voyager was then stranded in the Delta Quadrant. With the death of the ship's senior scientist, Samantha Wildman became head of the exobiology department. (VOY episodes: "Caretaker", "Dreadnought", "Elogium", ST video game: Starship Creator)
Samantha and her daughter, NaomiEdit
In 2372, there were complications during the birth, and the child died. However, a subspace accident had duplicated Voyager and the duplicated child was returned to Samantha when her counterpart was killed. The child was later named Naomi.(VOY episode: "Deadlock") After the Kazon had stranded the crew on a primitive planet when they captured Voyager, her baby became ill and almost died. The chief of the primitive tribe native to the planet, cured her with herbs and roots. Neelix would have a crisis of faith and believe that life was not worth living after being revived after an accident. It was thanks to Ensign Wildman that Chakotay was able to remind Neelix that his family was now the crew of Voyager, especially Wildman's daughter Naomi, who was very fond of him; indeed, he was also Naomi's godfather. (VOY episode: "Mortal Coil")
On an away mission, the Delta Flyer, crewed by Wildman, Tom Paris and Tuvok, was damaged by an ion storm, crashed, and was buried under rock on a deserted planetoid. Wildman was seriously hurt, bleeding internally. With their air running out, Wildman recorded a goodbye message to her daughter. Neelix would keep her daughter occupied in a holoprogram while the rescue effort took place. Just before the air was depleted, the Flyer was dug out and transported to Voyager, saving the crew. After her injuries healed, Wildman and Naomi would visit the holoprogram, accompanied by Neelix and Janeway. (VOY episode: "Once Upon a Time")
Return to the FederationEdit
In 2382, for her part in helping to reveal the conspiracy behind the catomic health crisis, Samantha was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and given her choice of assignments - she chose her husband's homeworld of Ktaris. (VOY novel: Atonement)
