David A. Kimball (born 20 February 1951; age 69) is the actor who played Esaak in the Star Trek: Enterprise first season episode "Dear Doctor".

Kimball has also guest-starred on a number of other television programs, with the earliest being a 1987 episode of Hill Street Blues which also featured future Star Trek: Voyager actor Tim Russ, as well as Terrence Evans, Anne Haney, James Saito, David Selburg, and Blues regulars Megan Gallagher and James B. Sikking. This was followed with appearances on such comedies as Murphy Brown (in an episode with Erick Avari) and 3rd Rock from the Sun, and numerous dramas, including Beverly Hills, 90210 (with Ann Gillespie and Leonard Kelly-Young), L.A.

Abrams' hit action series Alias (with Terry O'Quinn). In addition, he appeared in the "Finding Nimmo" episode of Boston Legal, a series which stars William Shatner and Rene Auberjonois. That episode also guest-starred Crystal Allen, Leslie Jordan, Lisa Kaminir, J. Patrick McCormack, and Michael Wiseman.
