I think you can have that in you ruleset by giving flag "Capturable" to Frigate unit, and flag "Capturer" to your Pirate unit.

What I wish has nothing to do with current barbarians (sometimes mistaken by pirates).
I'd wish a sea unit, or land+sea unit, that could take an empty frigate from an enemy and not kill it, but take ownership of it.
So, e.g., if cornish nation seas an empty canadian boat near cornish shores, a cornish pirate would go there into the sea and take that frigate, just like diplomats would buy it, but a pirate doesnt need to buy anything, all that would be required is that the unit taking enemy ship is a special unit called pirate.
Just like real-life pirates do.

I've long wished for the possibility of applying barbarian mechanics to human players, where you'd get "gifts" from the server in the form of a frigate loaded with legion and the like.

Maybe what you want is a (human-controlled) diplomacy-capable barbarian/pirate leader unit?

I ask for a new hybrid land-and-sea unit called Pirate, which icon is a row, which has poor attack and defense (like 1-1-2), but that can take frigs, battleships and submarines, transfering property of those ships to the player of pirate.
That would make the game funnier, for weak players could surprise strong ones.
I'd post that 'wish' in freeciv forum if it didnt asked me a password. tks.
