I have managed to pull off my first attack on an Alien system. After few turns of bombardment comes invasion. When all said and done I was left with a DEAD WORLD. It is dead hence I cannot even send a Colony Ship to it!!!
Is there anyway I can capture the Alien System and occupy it? I want to use it as a forward operation / refuelling base to continue my attack deep into enemy territory. What technology do I need?

hlo - bombardment is faster way to clean aliens off a world, but is also a scorched earth policy. Try Invade if you don't mind a few QP damage during the battle, and its still faster, or Scout for a slower, but 100% QP result.
