The official announcement states:

Space pirates is about treasures, avoiding the Imperials and drinking in taverns… but in space! It’s a fun theme that brings fun one-eyed-captains, grim soldiers and angry tiki warriors straight through the centuries to live more exciting adventures with robot parrots and laser saber (

The Caribbean galaxy is a nice place to live. Each planetary system is protected by battalions of the imperial armada under the command of the Governor. Well it would be a nice place to live, if it wasn’t for the space pirates!

These lawless souls only hunger for riches, treasures and rum! The Governor do what he can to protect the civilians of the countless cities like Spaceport Royal to be ransacked by the pirates, while still looking for planets to conquer and the rumored treasures of the galaxy.

Here be an entry from the previous Space Pirates contest held during 2015.

"The Last Outpost" by Darkblane

An Imperial fort… floating in space!

"The Last Outpost" by Darkblane

Where we’re going we don’t need row boats

This entry be “The Last Outpost” by Darkblane who describes it as:

Welcome to the last outpost, where one Imperial soldier and his cyber parrot maintain watch over the uncharted regions of space, ready to send a signal or activate the turret at the first sign of space pirates.

Darkblane also created a Classic Pirates version:

"The Last Outpost" by Darkblane (Classic Pirates version)

Now yer can compare the difference

Rowboat - "The Last Outpost" by Darkblane (Classic Pirates version)

In this version the soldier has much strong arms

With a slightly modified description:

Welcome to the last outpost, where one Imperial soldier and his faithful parrot maintain watch over the uncharted seas, ready to light the beacon or man the cannon at the first sign of pirates.

There be more photos in the Flickr album but by now yer should know the difference between Classic Pirates and Space Pirates.
