In my pirate game the RNG hasn't been good to me lately, only capped 2 ships out of 200+ ships. Rolling Eyes

My trouble right now is picking a likely target with my limited marines. I only have 10 right now in a scabbard and they're scrubs. All 2 fighting except one 4, and nobody's got secondary skills higher than 1-2 stars. :/

Not much I can hope to accomplish.

Now that I've got some money, that's possible.

I was not after the shiny,
but a favour of the lady.
Left litter on me wake,
and for reason unbeknowst,
a carcass of a robofighter,
all blue 'twas.

Hardly worth to commandeer.

Show-off. Laughing

Seriously, though, that was brilliant.

Alright, I have to admit failure on this. Sad I couldn't even capture the Vidar the Terran plot throws at you, and had to take the mulligan turn-over. Bah.

Not quite what the OP had in mind, but...

Argon News Agency wrote:
HERETIC'S END PATROL BASE -- The United Space Command is offering a reward for the whereabouts of a Yokohama-class frigate allegedly hijacked by the Yaki pirate faction at approximately 03:00 Standard Time yesterday morning.

The USS Halsey was on schedule as performing a routine patrol in Saturn Sector Two in the Sol System. At 02:37, Saturn Command received a distress signal from the Halsey reporting a catastrophic loss of engine power. An ATF vessel in the area responded, but arrived in Saturn 2 at 03:13 only to see the Halsey activate a jumpdrive in the midst of her crew's lifeboats and leave the system. The ATF ship attempted unsuccessfully to track the jump, then began recovering the lifeboats.

The surviving crew reported they had abandoned ship after the power loss. Some stated they had seen a small fighter believed to be of Commonwealth design approaching the disabled Halsey. Others described it as a comet fragment.

At approximately 04:50, the USC patrol base in Heretic's End received an anonymous tip that a white M7-class warship had been spotted in the Yaki-controlled system Senator's Badlands in the far "southwest" of the mapped gate network. A task group led by the frigate USS Obama was dispatched to Senator's Badlands to investigate. Obama's captain immediately reported that they were under attack by numerous Yaki fighters but stated the enemy to be taking heavy losses. All contact with the task group was lost shortly thereafter.

At a press conference, USC Admiral Jane Yamamoto informed reporters that the service is offering 15 million Commonwealth credits to information leading to the recovery or destruction of the USS Halsey, and another 5 million for the Yaki involved in her theft, payable dead or alive. "The Commonwealth has allowed the Yaki to run amok in their territory for far too long. That they have grown bold enough to dare a strike so deep into the very home of humanity is testament to this."

Asked if she had any fears regarding the possibility of the Yaki reverse-engineering the Halsey's systems, she responded with a flat no. Asked to elaborate, she said, "Contrary to popular belief, reverse-engineering a device requires you to have a similar technological base. Terran and Commonwealth vessels use two entirely different sets of technologies, as evidenced by our weapons' being entirely non-cross-compatible. I rather doubt they'll even be able to fully repair the Halsey, let alone duplicate it."

Despite these claims, there are already sporadic reports of a Yokohama-class vessel traveling through parts of the Commonwealth. Most are likely rumor, but the USC has vowed to investigate all such sightings.

I hate "TLAP day", but I inadvertantly did this challenge anyway, as I just captured my first ship earlier during one of the early Terran missions. A Nova Raider from a pirate! Repped it to 35% and then sent it off to dock for a bit, while I did more missions. I couldn't tell whether it was a special "pirate" version of the nova raider, didn't get close enough to look for paint. Laughing

Soooooo

4 TLs, a Boreas, a Yokohama and a Pirate Nova Raider.

A pretty poor show for Talk Like A Pirate day Sad

It's a shame that just as I was about to turn off, my crucial 21st marine came out of training, any earlier and I may have added a K to that list Very Happy

Oh well, I will do it tonight. Expect an update Smile

I also completed this challenge - but inadvertently, as I hadn't read the thread until this morning.

My haul for last night:

3 Deimos
1 Zeus
1 Hyperion Vanguard
2 Hercules
1 Hades
