I would suppose that the lawyers will subpoena everyone on the ship and who participated in any way in the capture of the pirates, expecting that they will be taken away from their duties around the world to cool their heals waiting for a court to hear their testimony.

Just guessing that the trial will cost $10 million-$100 million.

Even if a US Navy ship no longer has a yard arm from which pirates may be hanged, I'd be surprised if the average bosun couldn't coonjure up a means to carry out justice for characters like these in a simple and economical fashion that might actually have some deterrence value.
