A pirate is the terror of the shipping lanes, and can sniff out a full cargo hold or an opportunity for plunder from the ships' bridge. Pirates are skilled at ambushing merchants and smugglers as well as creeping into zones to sell their stolen cargo. They are experts at crippling and capturing enemy ships. The Quadrants are vast and a pirate who knows it well will be able to prey on the richest shipping lanes and visit the most profitable exchanges.
