Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Capital Ship

Massive capital warships are much too large and expensive to be ‘wasted' on pirate hunting.

Nonetheless, pirates do sometimes encounter capital ships.

There are two likely scenarios - either the navy has detected a pirate base, and wish to pound it into free-floating dust, or some influential noble or corporation has made a fuss and the Navy wishes to show how seriously it takes the pirate situation.

Both scenarios involve a great deal overkill.
