Sorry, dont have rules to hand, and playing ipad game.

I enter a sector and destroy the opposing ships.

It then automatically attacks the planets. I score multiple hits with whatever weapons I have equipped (yellow and orange) but never destroys the colonies.

Do I need a specific weapon? If yes, why is it even bothering with the attack if I don't have them equipped?

Or am I missing something else?

Thanks

That doeszn't sound right.
The way it works is like this: If you have Neutron bombs then the Colonies are destroyed automatically. If you don't, you attack them with wahtever weapons are equipped, and if you score a hit, you destroy a colony.

Hummm.

I've NEVER won despite scoring multiple hits. I'm positive.

Do you automatically colonise after defeating? (As in get the option to send colonists)

You need to destroy all the colonies in a hex. If you manage that, you're given the option to influence the hex, then the opportunity to colonise if you have available colony ships.

no, you always have the option to put down an influence disk....as long as there are no colonies left in the sector

Ah ok, that's probably what's going on; I'm not destroying them all.

Thanks.

Except missiles. If you don't kill them all (pop cubes) then you can't remove the disk nor can you place a disk of your own and do your own colonization.
