Perhaps they should put some effort into exploring the territory around said planet before dropping off people on the edge of known space?
They probably did and found no signs saying "This is Gorn/Dominion territory - GTFO". After all, space is big and unless you leave some sign of ownership on a planet, it's not hard to see why people would think an uninhabited planet is free for the taking.
