Gabriel Lorca claimed his family made fortune cookies in the 22nd century, and Lorca kept a bowl of them in his ready room on the USS Discovery. In 2256, he offered one to Michael Burnham as a symbol for the possibilities of working on his ship.
When the Discovery returned from the mirror universe and Lorca's deception was revealed, Vice-Admiral Katrina Cornwell used a phaser to vaporize Lorca's bowl of fortune cookies in anger. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings", "The War Without, The War Within")
After assuming temporary command of Discovery in 2257, Captain Christopher Pike found a fortune cookie message at the base of Lorca's desk that read, "not every cage is a prison, not every loss is eternal." (DIS: "Brother")
