Douglas Spain (born 15 April 1974; age 46) is an actor from Los Angeles, California, who played young Chakotay in the Star Trek: Voyager second season episode "Tattoo".

Voyager was Spain's first venture into episodic television. It would be followed by guest appearances on Pacific Blue (a series on which David L. Lander was a regular), Nash Bridges (in an episode with Caroline Lagerfelt), Nothing Sacred (with Donna Murphy), Brooklyn South (starring James B. Sikking), Four Corners (with Brian McNamara), Becker (starring Terry Farrell, in an episode with Alice Krige), Family Law (starring Christopher McDonald and Julie Warner, in an episode with Steven Culp), The Practice (with John Vargas), JAG (starring Scott Lawrence, in an episode with Zoe McLellan), CSI: Miami (with Tim Kelleher), and NCIS (with Benjamin Brown). In addition, he had a role in the acclaimed, award-winning HBO mini-series Band of Brothers (along with David Andrews, Scott Grimes, Tom Hardy and Neal McDonough) and a recurring role as Tommy Corales on Resurrection Blvd., during which time he worked with Lawrence Monoson, Tony Plana, Ray Wise, and Daniel Zacapa.

Spain has also been active in film. After making his debut with a small part in 1993's Flashfire (featuring Mark L.

This was followed with supporting roles in such films as Permanent Midnight (1998, also featuring Andy Dick), But I'm a Cheerleader (1999, with Robert Pine), and What's Cooking? (2000, co-starring Alfre Woodard, Gregory Itzin, and Frank Novak).
