Series Summary from ANN:
Marika is a first year high school student living in a far away galaxy known as Uminoakeboshi. One day she finds out that her recently deceased father was once the captain of the space pirate ship called the Bentenmaru. More importantly, the only one to inherit the captain's title has to be a direct descendant - meaning that Marika is next in line to become the captain of the ship. 
Kenn's Comment: Reminds me a bit of Sora no Kakeru Shoujo.

I'm worried about this one. And I have all the rights to worry about it. Satelight can be a great studio...if it has the funding support, especially with a space-opera-esque series like this. Also, I had a hard time digging info up for this one. The light novel series goes by a different name, ミニスカ宇宙海賊, Miniskirt Space Pirates. I hear it was changed to give the series a first impression, so to speak. Some of the CG scenes in the PV didn't look all that great either, mainly with the ship.

Anywho, from what I've read, it's supposed to appeal to the 'older-school' otaku, rather than the moe-fanservice-crazed ones of today (look at Twin Angel lol). All female cast, with a rather impressive voice cast as well. I'll give this one a shot, and hope it doesn't disappoint.
