"Sorry, kid. Life doesn't work like that..."
– Burke's dying words to Jake Sisko, 2373 ("Nor the Battle to the Strong")

Chief Burke was a Starfleet soldier.

In 2373, he fought on Ajilon Prime when it was attacked by Klingons during the Federation-Klingon War that year. His platoon was forced to withdraw in a hopper due to the Klingons' use of transport inhibitors. Chief Burke stayed behind to cover the hopper and eventually died due to injuries that he sustained during the battle. Jake Sisko was with Burke before his death. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")

Quotes Edit

"I'm not going to die with my face in the dirt."

"I want to go out looking up at the sky, not at the ground."

Burke was played by Star Trek regular Danny Goldring. His name comes from the script.
Burke was described in the script as "a badly wounded Starfleet Lieutenant, his uniform soaked with blood - he's BURKE, a seasoned combat veteran of about forty." (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion - A Series Guide and Script Library)
The tattered uniform "flack jacket" Danny Goldring wore to play Burke was sold in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction for US$104.50. [1]
