Well down at my forum for STarrider pirates. We are hopfully going to become a faction once we can get all our needs in. We are having a poll for a Starrider Pirate Ship. And what should i do with this. Once everyone votes i will bring it to you and see if we can get a data Card and then a ship making service to make it for us. Like the X-wing is to the Rebellion and stuff so our ship is to the Starrider Pirates.
James you will not get the ARC
Reason Number 1: Datacards are not handed out to new factions, as Wil said, you have to R&D your own.
Reason Number 2: Pirate Factions dont get Ship datacards.
Reason Number 3: The ARC is rare, so the datacard wont be give out to anyone atm.
