Border Pirates Declare for Imperium

The notorious pirate ship Berlin today broadcast a statement to the incoming merchant ship Read My Sea Leaves that stated that hunted criminal Robin Sherwood was suspending her activity against Imperial ships, and would fight for the Imperium in the case of war.  She emphasized that she would spread the word through the pirate community so that system navies could prepare to defend their systems against invasion rather than waste resources on protecting merchant shipping.

Imperial authorities stated that while on the surface a generous gesture, in no way would they be considering a pardon or even Letter of Marque for any pirates.
