Talk Like a Pirate Day! Aaarrrr!

I can't believe I missed "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" yesterday (Tuesday). I was already prepared for my Legion tie-in:



Good ol' Captain Frake. Too bad this was her only storyline, and I believe she's the only space pirate the Legion ever met.

Apparently by the 30th century, pirate-speak will have died out. Had this scene taken place in the early 21st century, it would have sounded something like this:
"No, gar! You're one o' me space pirates now -- and I order yo t' destroy the cursed Legion, and send 'em to Davy Jones' locker! Yaarrrr!"

Well, the current series had the memorable Element Lad "I hate pirates" scene.

There were those Sklarian Raiders/Pirates. Kono's mother was apparently a member of them preboot and I can't remember what their deal was post-ZH.
