Lieutenant Esteban Rodriguez was a male Human Starfleet officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served in the sciences division aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during a historic five-year mission that starship undertook.

In 2267, Rodriguez was in a seven-member landing party assigned to explore the Shore Leave Planet. During his visit there, his imagination gave form to a flock of birds, a Bengal tiger, and, later, a Japanese Zero warplane that strafed and apparently killed Angela Martine. (TOS: "Shore Leave")

Rodriguez was portrayed by Perry Lopez.
In the Lost Era novel Serpents Among the Ruins, Rodriguez was "officially" the captain of the USS Agamemnon, with Mike Paris, Tom's grandfather, as his first officer, and was killed along with his entire crew when the ship, along with thirteen Starfleet outposts, was destroyed in the Tomed Incident – but in reality, like all 4,000 other supposed casualties of the catastrophe, he had been killed at some point in the year before, and their deaths were covered up, with records falsified to make it appear that they had perished aboard the Agamemnon and the lost bases.
