newbie here. Wanted to get the feel for how to play. started with no AI only pirates. Small map, small clusters. Trying to get down the mechanics and micromanaging.(always loved that in games). Colonize first system, have some ships to defend then anywhere from 20 to 35 minutes in game time, pirates attack! Continue attacking every 2 minutes or so until my fleet is gone, cant produce anything fast enough and cant replenish my fleet fast enough. Is there a way to keep pirates as a nuisance and not a game ender? Am I missing something? Or am I just too old to be taught new games?

Pirates will attack you more when you are the only empire. They attack the least defended system with the best economy. So when there are more empires you'll find yourself being attacked less.
