Well, my favorite memory of messing around in EVC (something that is much more worthwhile due to the lack of story missions compared to EVO and EVN) was using a Kestrel to dominate Sauron. After that, I went and capture me a fleet of two Rapiers and four Lightnings. Then I went and bought a Rapier for myself, removed all ranged ordnance other than Javelins, and turned it into a flying gun platform. Then I took myself and my squadron around the system, raiding anyone who moved, basically being the Dread Pirate DarthKev.
It was actually really fun. I even took down a Confed Cruiser once without loosing a wingman by luring the fighters away, killing them off, then having my squadron stand by while I lured the cruiser closer. When it was in position, I ordered my squadron to open fire and they all launched Heavy Rockets, instantly knocking it down low enough for us to finish off. Well, not before we looted it of all credits on board. Ah, memories... ^_^
