Space pirate (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
Space pirates were criminals who robbed ships in space.
Space pirates operated by sabotaging navigational beacons and luring spacecrafts away from chartered space routes to ambush them and steal their cargo. They were also known to claim the beacons, storing their bounty in the Bank of Karabraxos, taking advantage of its habit of not asking too many questions. (PROSE: The Whoniverse)
