I love this game and especially pirates. Here are some of my opening moves as merce or raiders. I play usually with very many pirates at very weak strength.
1. Find and gimp empire systems early in the game. Blockade home worlds with one or two dedicated ships.
2. Attack to scrap indie/empire freighters for quick micromanage credits.
3. Troop transports are good for the 4 assault pods. More pods= larger colonies cam be raided.
4. One you have a criminal network begin coordinated invasions. Use raiding fleets to soften up ground before invading with your own transports (dont use transports to raid during ground attack).
5. Spy on other pirates to find their star base asap.
6. Vs. Stronger empires burn their outlying infrastructure.
7. For developed empires their home world (and obligatory defense platforms) should be last target most times.
8. Raid then burn starbases. Try to cap existing fuel gas stations.

These are just a few. I hope to dedicate some time to expanding pirate stuff. Please feel free to share your own cheese.

Sounds like you were born about450 years too late. You'd have fit in quite well during the golden age of pirates in the Carribean.


Freedom is not free! Nor should it be. For men being men will neither fight for nor value that which is free.

Lawl yaargh. Looks like you have to hit empire quick 4 bill or higher pop really cramps your control.

Edit: course any good merc will have bombards for pesky "civilization".
