Default Can\'t Attack Enemy Satellites Built ON My Planet!

Hi! An AI enemy had a colony planet. I destroyed his population with bombardment, but did not destroy the satellites he had built on his colony. I then colonized the planet. On subsequent turns, I have sent frigates with proper ship-to-ship weaponry to this planet, in an attempt to destroy the satellites - but they refuse to fire on the satellites, despite my using the button functions to specifically order them to do so.
Now, if I ever try to put any ships there, I get combat every turn! It's quite annoying. I'm using Kwok's newest balance mod in this game.
What may I try?

The satellites are in orbit? Or in cargo?
If they're in orbit, the frigates SHOULD be firing on them, unless they're out of supplies or ordnance or something... or are your frigates armed with missiles only? Missiles can't target satellites, for some odd reason...
If the satellites are in cargo, I'd expect them to be yours now and not causing a combat... are they not yours?

Oh, that's it!

Thanks Ed!

Yeah, I use Missiles pretty exclusively until later in the game - and apparently missiles cannot shoot satellites. I've dispatched some Point-Defense-Cannon-equipped frigates and they've done the job.

Thanks again!
