A Level 7 Pirate Ship in some promotional art.


The Pirate Faction is one of the 3 starter factions you get to pick in Pixel Starships. The other two being the Federation and the Qtarian. This faction usually has the least amount of grids.


The main difference that separates the Pirate Faction from the other two is its horizontal and elongated design. Pirate ships are incredibly long and not very tall. They also have a non-box design which wastes alot of grids when placing rooms down.


The main color scheme for the Pirate ships are their distinct Red and Grey color along with its threatening skull. They also have a special ship branch unlocked at level 10 called the Scavenger.

The List of Pirate Ships can be found here Pirate Ships and Pirate Scavenger Ships.
