Troke was a male Tulian, a Federation citizen serving in Starfleet as an officer in the 2250s decade. As common for his people, Troke's body included cybernetic enhancements. These included circular metal enhancements on the left side of his face, and a neural coupling protruding from the occipital lobe on the same side.

By 2255, Lieutenant Troke served as deputy science officer of the USS Shenzhou under the command of Captain Philippa Georgiou. He operated from a sunken duty station and reported to Lieutenant Commander Saru, the ship's chief science officer.
In May of that year, Troke assisted Saru in making sense of the cave art found on Sirsa III, and discovered they were points of a map. Saru ordered Troke to match these to entries in the Federation Galactic Catalog. (DSC novel: Desperate Hours)
