That container came from the Empire and it was deliberately programmed to open early, so that it could infect the crew of the Bentenmaru and put them into quarantine. If all had gone according to plan, Bentenmaru's Letter of Marque would have expired during the quarantine.

[[WMG: What message did Marika sent to Yotof while Gruier was off the bridge?]] I think it was, "I will be carrying two cannisters of anesthetic gas when we board the Ghost Ship."

Note the way Ironbeard addresses her - calmly, firmly, without overt aggression or rudeness - and informs her that the Galactic Empire's Empress has charged him with returning her to the Empress' side. Also note that they're both theoretically equals, being pirates recognised by the Empire, and yet Ironbeard kneels before her on one knee, as if a subject before royalty. The last hint is how he tells her he intends to ensure her safety - and Ririka, who's now a member of Ironbeard's crew, foils the attempted assasination.

* Another advantage is that if they are facing directly towards an enemy they have a very small silhouette, which makes them harder to hit.

Most of the time, they take over the other ship's control systems before boarding, and in that case they use normal docking procedures. But in the last episode we saw that they can engage in boarding a ship they don't control, by ramming it. That worked pretty well for Shangrila, but it didn't penetrate very far because of its blunt shape. The blade shape of the Corback class and the Talbot class is more reinforced and should penetrate better, increasing the chance of reaching corridors in the target ship. The dual-blade Maracot class doesn't do this, but by the time that class was designed, the shipyards were already experience building blade-shaped hulls, so the design included two of them.

The reason for ships being shaped like knives.
* We also know that Serenity naval intelligence observed the battle, because they told Gruier that it was over and that the pirates had won.

** Also, they share the same eyes. ** [[spoiler: Confirmed (for the anime at least) in Episode 26 - Gruier calls him 'Captain Gonzaemon' and Ririka refers to him in the same way as she did Gonzaemon in Episode 1.]]

It was the location where they originally found the Golden Ghost Ship, and the area is lousy with Serenity sensor drones, all still operating. Courier already knows how to hack into those drones, and that's part of the information she uses to create that singularly excellent battlefield situation map. Also, Serenity had been feeding valuable information to Marika in preparation for the encounter, and this is Marika's way of paying them back. Serenity naval intelligence has a front row seat for the battle, and no matter how it comes out, those sensor records will be priceless. They get to see how the Grand Crosses fly and fight, and as it turns out they also get to see how the pirates defeat them.
