Excerpt from the game log:

00:18:47 - The colony on Kadoronino (Lithosoid) in Aco has been destroyed by Ancient Hezog Destroyer.
00:18:47 - Brunt: This is our space.
00:18:47 - Discovered the Hezog race
00:18:47 - Hezog have captured the planet Kadoronino from the Lithosoid!
00:18:47 - Lithosoid declares War on Hezog
00:18:47 - Noshiro destroys Hezog
00:18:47 - The Drox has rewarded you for destroying Hezog with Loot!

It appears that a Hezog destroyer destroyed a planet. Then in the space of a second they became race, were discovered by the Drox and were again destroyed by the Lithosoid. Oddly enough the game registered me as being the person to destroy the Herzog and awarded me a loot chest. Even though i had never met the race, never fired on them and wasn't at war with them as far as i can tell.

Something similar happened in the previous game as well:

00:31:43 - The colony on Jane (Fringe) in Capron has been destroyed by Lithosoid.
00:31:43 - Nimitz destroys Fringe
00:31:43 - The Drox has rewarded you for destroying Fringe with Loot!

In that game i was at war with the Fringe (Which they declared), and a few colonies of theirs were destroyed by me (10 minutes before the Lithosoid finished them off). Back then i figured the Drox might be rewarding major participation instead of requiring a last hit for a reward. But the Herzog situation above seems to invalidate that theory.

It does reward the race that did most of the damage. Not sure what happened in your first scenario though, I'll look into it.

That would indeed explain the second scenario - i certainly did more damage than the Lithosoid though it was a while in the past.

Aside from this i managed to reproduce the first scenario 2-3 times now with other characters, each time in a case where a planet was captured and then immediately destroyed. I can't for the life of me recall if this was an ancient cruiser capture every time, but perhaps the game considers damage to ancient Herzog cruiser(s) damage to their faction? Or perhaps the new colony died before any damage was done for whatever reason, causing the game to consider my "0 damage" worthy of an award because no-one did better?

Of course without looking at the source code those are just guesses, and you'll probably have a better idea of the cause than i have. If i happen to reproduce it again, I'll make sure to update the thread. :)

Off hand, I'm guessing that is what is happening.
