Captain Gabriel Lorca was a male Human Starfleet officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served as the commanding officer on board at least one Federation starship, the USS Buran. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings", "Choose Your Pain")
Commanding officer of the USS Buran
Unknown to any one at this time, Lorca had been replaced by his mirror universe counterpart, who assumed the identity of the prime universe's Lorca. Despite the loss of the Buran, and given mirror Lorca's manipulative ways, he was given command of the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain")
After discovering what had happened to Lorca, Vice Admiral Katrina Cornwell came to the conclusion that no one would be able to survive alone in the mirror universe and assumed that Lorca was dead. However, the fate of the original Lorca - and the precise timing of his replacement by his mirror counterpart - remains unknown.
