The story is thus:
I started a new game as a Determined Exterminator. I set the game to contain 2 marauder factions, since this is my first game with the Apocalypse DLC.

The first marauder empire spawned 7 or 8 jumps to the north of my home system, and were eradicated before they became a threat. The second marauder empire was on the other side of 2 AI empires and a Fallen Empire from me, so they got lucky and were allowed to live, for a time.

Marauder Empire 2 eventually gets itself a Khan, and begins spreading like a an actual Crisis. I begin exterminating my way to them, as they are by far the largest threat now. I destroy a starbase, the system goes back to neutral. Second system, I destroy the base and eventually notice the Khan still owns the system. There's a planet! Awesome, I've been wanting to neutron sweep some stuff with my colossus!

I get the colossus over there... and I can't sweep the planet. I'm told that this planet 'does not belong to a hostile empire.' Similarly, having a regular fleet of ships target said planet results in my fleet orbiting the planet, and *not* bombarding my organic enemies as I expected.

I don't know if this is an actual bug, per se, however... A hostile AI power that takes systems over like a slightly slower Scourge? Seems like it should be a valid target for a colossus or at least regular old orbital bombardment.
