Well... as anyone with a connection to the "MV Sirius Star" can attest to, the act of piracy is still going strong... ...how about in EP? Beaming aside there is clearly still a market for spacecraft and with isolated communities to boot I can imagine there ought to be a nere-do-well or two out there between the planets with a dastardly intentions. Any space pirates out there? Then again, given the technology available and the threats that are about, I imagine that no matter how co-operative and peaceful it may appear to be, smart ships and habitats are armed when possible.
