the first about rules: If an opponent can not kill all my population, then the hex is still under my control, in the next round, can I turn my colonial ships to put the cubes in place?

the second about strategy: I always played creating an economic engine pretty good, and only after attack your opponent. Today I played with orion, and I tried to do the opposite, I already attacked in the second round, losing a great battle, and in the end I lost the game. also with orion you should not attack too soon?

1. Yes, you can put population back on the planets since you still have an Influence disk in that sector.

2. I'd say for any race you shouldn't attack when you're not ready. The Orion are probably the best race to choose if you're going to do an early attack, but if you don't have enough ships or properly upgraded ships, you're at risk to lose battles, regardless of who you're playing as.

Yes. You can also build Ships and Starbases in that hex (to depend yourself against the enemy ships that are presumably still there).

One game does not a strategy make. It will depend on what race your opponent is playing, what they spent their first turn doing, the rolls of the dice, and so on. Orion is better equipped to attack than any other race at the start of the game, so yes, I recommend attacking quickly. (By mid-game, your opponents have usually had a chance to catch up to Orion tech-wise.) But understand that you're leaving yourself up to the whims of the dice more than you would with other races.

1. be sure that you don't put cubes on your hex until NEXT round: you cannot put more cubes during upkeep phase if there are still enemy ships present.
