'''Burke''' was the designation of a [[comet]] [[orbit]]ing [[Sol]] until the mid-[[22nd century]].
   
In [[2147]], Burke was redirected by the [[verteron array]] on [[Mars]] for impact on the [[planet]]'s [[north pole]] as part of the [[terraforming]] project aimed at thickening the [[atmosphere]] in [[2155]]. In that year, [[Jonathan Archer]], {{dis|captain|rank}} of {{EnterpriseNX}}, took advantage of Burke's approach to stop [[John Frederick Paxton]], leader of the [[xenophobic]] [[terrorist]] group [[Terra Prime]], from using the verteron array to destroy [[Starfleet Headquarters]].

Using a {{dis|shuttlepod|22nd century}}, Archer and a small team from ''Enterprise'' approached Mars behind the comet, hiding in the tail. As the comet began to enter Mars' atmosphere and break up, the team began to experience increasing turbulence and difficulty in maintaining control of the pod. Despite this, the pod's [[pilot]], [[Travis Mayweather]], was able to follow the comet all the way to the surface, breaking away immediately before impact, successfully concealing their approach from Paxton.
