Mike Burnham was a male Human scientist who lived during the first half of the 23rd century. Burnham was married to Gabrielle Burnham, and together they had one daughter, Michael.

In 2236, the three resided on Doctari Alpha, where posing as a xenoanthropologist, he worked as an operative for Section 31. (DIS: "Battle at the Binary Stars", "The Red Angel", "Perpetual Infinity")

During that time, they had originally planned a vacation to Mars. but a young Burnham begged them to stay three more days to witness a nearby star go supernova. However, during their extended stay, Doctari Alpha was attacked by the Klingons. Burnham's father attempted to barricade the kitchen door, while her mother hid her in a cabinet. Burnham did not witness the death of her parents, but she heard everything happen, saying that they killed her father quickly, but took longer with her mother. The Klingons then sat down on Burnham's family table, ate the dinner the family had prepared and laughed. (DIS: "The Vulcan Hello", "Will You Take My Hand?")

Mike Burnham was played by Kenric Green, the real-life husband of Sonequa Martin-Green.
The novel Desperate Hours calls him Calvin.
