Pirates are the second-largest faction, most hostile ships you fight during the game will probably be Pirate Talons, unless you choose to become a Pirate yourself. Their systems and ships (if you have a B&S radar) are marked red.

At the start of the game they control three systems, each of which hosts a base: Bellamy in the Rynkel System, Munroe in TC-101 and Bounty in LV-426. Once your ship is strong enough to visit them you can buy contraband and Hidden Compartments there.
