Cheese, a tip for you. Pirates will tell you of an independent colony, and its a trick, they guard the colony. So, if they do give you this info, send a fleet of military ships while that colonyship is being built
Or buy protection, I find it best to always kill the pirates first, and only if you are about to lose something (like a colony ship) open up the diplo window and pay them protection.
Another trick they play on you is to offer to sell you a map of an unexplored system. You buy it and find out its just a gas cloud, or a star with no planets. Don't trust 'em
