Default Looking for opinions on a point of mechanics

I've resurrected an old coding project that tracks vector movement and displays it on a "sensor screen" from an active unit viewpoint. The other units are seen from its perspective, a perspective which can be shifted to the other units. I'm sticking largely to CT rules for range DM spheres and such. The display will re-scale to any size grid based upon how far apart the involved ships are, but that can get fairly large since the Cartesian data, based in kilometers, is kept in 8 byte integer variables, IOW, potentially interstellar distances.

So, the point is, I would love to hear your opinions on what range you would consider a vessel to be "out of theater", beyond sensor lock or firing solution, and/or just plain gonesville. This is for the purpose of making a ship disappear from the screen regardless of any zoom factor.
