In an alternate reality, Michael Burnham (born 2226) was a human female and Starfleet officer.
Like her primary universe counterpart Burnham served on the USS Shenzhou, becoming first officer to that reality's version of Philippa Georgiou. Unlike her counterpart, Burnham did not commit mutiny against Georgiou, who did not die in battle against the Klingons.
Burnham was later promoted to Captain and was named commanding officer of the USS Discovery. She remained friends with Georgiou, who herself was promoted to the rank of Fleet Captain. (DSC novel: Dead Endless)
In 2411, the Excalbians created a version of Michael Burnham based on Burnham as she existed before the 2257 battle against Control and the USS Discovery's apparent destruction. The simulacrum worked with a Starfleet crew and Seven of Nine to work through Excalbian tests. When all was finished, the replica Burnham asked, and was granted, the request to stay alive. Burnham left to find the Mycelial network-created duplicate of Paul Stamets and ask to be reinstated into Starfleet. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)
