In space, enemies 'see' you at 10KM. On ground, generally, enemies see you at around 20-25M.

And unless you attack first (instantly aggroing), it takes them a few seconds to actually attack you, usually.

At least from my experience

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

On ground it is easy to test.
Sit cloaked in a corner far enough away, out of weapons range. Have the rest of the group scattered about, one member agro a group of enemies by proxy (don't shoot them) and watch what happens. Since everyone has 0 agro they will split up and attack random people, and yes they will find you, very far away sitting in a corner cloaked.

Second test is easy, in incursion make sure you have everyone assigned to a corner. Watch as patrols in your corner have your team mates targeting but not attacking. Run up beside enemy, agro by proxy and duck behind a corner... watch the enemy run across the entire map to go kill your team mate.

AI targeting in the game with 0 threat generated is buggy as anything, or when a team mate dies they'll split up and go after anyone.

This is where the Sniper Rifle shines--it's the one weapon type having both a Primary and Secondary fire mode with a range outside of the enemies' perception range. If you use Aim mode (X key) and a Power Cell (and other buffs if you are Tac), then you can use the secondary fire mode to one-shot one of the weaker enemies in a group before they even realize that you are there.
How many Starfleet Engineers does it take to exchange an Anti-positronic Photon Emitter?
