- This page details Gabriel Lorca in the primary universe; for the Gabriel Lorca in the mirror universe see Gabriel Lorca (mirror).
Later in 2246, Lorca - now a lieutenant commander - was stationed at a monitoring outpost near Tarsus IV. He became involved in the search for Kodos, working with Commander Philippa Georgiou. (DSC novel: Drastic Measures)
At some point in 2256, Lorca was replaced by his mirror universe counterpart, who was beaming up from Priors World to the ISS Buran. Due to an ion storm striking the Buran, Mirror-Lorca found himself in the prime universe instead. He impersonated Lorca Prime, and achieved command of the USS Discovery. (DSC episode: "The Wolf Inside")
Lorca Prime, in turn, found himself in the mirror universe. While Admiral Katrina Cornwell, assuming no one could survive alone in the mirror universe, believed Lorca to be dead (DSC episode: "The War Without, The War Within"), Lorca did in fact survive, and is currently being held prisoner by a faction of Terrans.
