When I star a new game I have many ships I chose one and give it orders to orbit pluto. Then when I go to Engage Sector ALL of my ships go there.

When engaging a sector, you are presented with a list of neutral/hostiles visible to you. When you select it will move all your ships close to the target (this is as intended in instanced combat mode).

Orbit command is good because sometimes (early part of the game or when you don't have a starbase) it will move your ships in scan range of pluto and detect potential neutral/hostile ships which you may not see otherwise, including quest characters etc.

The game also has an option to disable the instanced combat system. But the instanced combat system streamlines a lot of things and many people find it better for gameplay so we have it as the default system.
