In 2293, Burke, along with Yeoman [[Samno]], participated in the [[Khitomer conspiracy]] to sabotage peace talks between the {{Federation}} and the [[Klingon Empire]]. Burke and Samno were on duty in the [[transporter room]] when [[Chancellor of the Klingon High Council|Chancellor]] [[Gorkon]] and his party [[beam]]ed aboard the ''Enterprise'' to attend a formal dinner with {{Captain}} [[James T. Kirk|Kirk]] and his crew, Burke announcing their arrival with a [[boatswain's whistle]]. After the party had left the transporter room, the two traded racist remarks about the [[Klingon]]s, Burke commenting that "only top-of-the-line models can even talk..."

Following the departure of the Klingon contingent, Gorkon's [[flagship]], ''[[Kronos One]]'', was attacked by a [[cloak]]ed [[Chang's Bird-of-Prey|Bird-of-Prey]], suffering severe damage. As the disabled ''Kronos One'' drifted out-of-control, Burke and Samno [[beam]]ed aboard wearing [[EV suit]]s and [[gravity boot]]s, and began systematically [[murder]]ing Klingons, including Chancellor Gorkon himself. After returning to the ''Enterprise'', the pair hid their suits in a ventilation shaft in the ship's [[officers' mess]]. However, they accidentally brought aboard some Klingon [[blood]], and their suits were later discovered by [[Montgomery Scott]]. When it became clear that the ''Enterprise'' crew was close to discovering the truth, Burke and Samno were murdered by fellow conspirator, [[Lieutenant]] [[Valeris]], via a [[phaser]] set to [[stun]] fired at close range.

Later, in a ruse to discover the other conspirator, Captains Kirk and [[Spock]] initiated a sting operation, where misinformation was spread indicating that Burke and Samno had survived, and laid in wait in [[sickbay]] to discover Valeris, who had come to finish the job of killing the two yeomen.
