This is the supplement I've been waiting for. Everyone who I've played Rogue Trader with has skirted Imperial rule at best and obviously flown in the face of it at worst. Now, they finally have the ability to take alternate career ranks in just the type of criminal they have always wanted to be. More than that, the book describes what exactly a Rogue Trader should be expected to get away with and what would get them all but killed in the more "civil" parts of the Imperium. There are a number of adversaries for the players to contend with focused on Imperial lawkeepers, Inquisitors, and the like. Take that to the next level and you get the Nemesis path. This let's the GM create a fully fleshed out nemesis for his RT crew. It's a nice addition with some RP elements to make them feel more real. Finally, you get a ton of exotic and ridiculously valuable loot that your players can pursue. They obviously require a bit of smuggling and probably some treason to really take full advantage of, but you can't make an omelet without overthrowing a few Imperial planets.

I love the Warhammer 40K books and this finally gave me the kick in the pants to get a campaign going AND convinced my gaming group to jump on board to be flagrant space pirates. The art is insane as usual, so there's no reason not to buy this book.

Hostile Acquisitions is another excellent entry into the Rogue Trader line of products. It is also an extremely useful book for Dark Heresy or Black Crusade because of its subject matter. The same laws and groups that will be faced by the Rogue Trader as he or she deals with aliens, bootlegs bolters and engages in piracy, will also be the ones that are enforced by Dark Heresy (where you can play as Arbites) and be fought against by the Heretics in Black Crusade. Hostile Acquisition includes tons of flavorful new equipment and alternate class ranks. The Nemesis Origin Path is incredible stuff. It's so nice to be able to create an adversary through similar steps to how PCs are created, and it really helps flesh out the characters. While it is a very focused book (none of the material will work if the PCs want to stay within Imperial law, especially because the alternate class ranks IMMEDIATELY make you an enemy of some, or ALL OF the Imperium) it includes so many neat details it is nonetheless, in my opinion, worth the purchase for any Warhammer 40k RPG enthusiast.
