Congratulations. You have just discovered the secret message.
Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the Funny Farm, Chalfont.
I know, I have the module.
But where are the rules for Scopes found?
They are only listed in the scenario setup.
Rules for their use are found in the section "Targets Inbound" at the top of the second column on Page 9. Essentially, they are used by the Imperial player to place their grouped ships on the board throughout the game.
