This is another case where the game is actually working as intended -- though the behavior is confusing, so perhaps the rules need to change.
Right now, there are some system specials, including the "derilict spacecraft" discoveries, that you can only discover if you have a ship with the "scanner" special system. Additionally, if you get chased out of a system by pirates or other NPCs, you won't have a chance to get any such system specials, but, you will still chart the system.
What happened to you at Procyon was
1) You scouted with your scout ship, but ran from the pirates. Thus, the special wasn't triggered.
2) You defeated the pirates with your CA, which didn't mount a scanner. Still no special.
3) You colonized one of the planets.
3) You routed your scout to Procyon, thus, finally, all the conditions were meet to discover the derelict.
Perhaps it's worth adding a special rule that says that, in the case that you *colonize* a planet in a system you haven't yet "scanned", any unscanned specials are discovered. I think that more or less makes sense.
Another reasonable adjustment might be to switch to a more Civ-like rule set, and say that systems are always "scanned", regardless of whether or not you have a ship with scanners. But, give better rewards in the case that a scout ship is present.
