I remember your theory when it was first posted. Just felt it was too
X-Files/JFK paranoia-driven for a story created in 1991.

Well, the Feds did set up Solar System II to stop the colony from dropping,
but they were not successful, and it did not look like they failed on
purpose - Gato managed to destroy one of the control ships, rendering the
Solar System II nearly useless. And Gato had to search for the control
ship, I don't think any Fed personnel told him the coordinates where he'd
find the control ship.

As for the colony's drop locationg being non-critical, I am not sure what
you meant. Gato told Nina that the adjustment was made for the intended
target of Op. Stardust, which turned out to be where the earthnoids were
growing grains for food supply. Their goal was clearly to force the
earthnoids become dependent on the spacenoids, at least for food. In that
sense, Stardust has been successfully carried out if you ask me.
