You actually *can* detect past 10km. I'm a science officer running an escort with a sensor/sensor array deflector and science console, and when I use the active scan/perception buff that all sci officer characters have, I can get intermittent detection up to roughly 12km. Of course its useless because they're out of tractor range and the second you fire on them they move out of the 12km range. I would also assume that a sci office on a sci ship with high aux could actually get a higher detection range than the one I'm getting at low aux on an escort.

Of course you can only use the scan ability every minute and 30 seconds so that limits the usefulness.
