I think this works in a few good ways. First it means that any place you "discover" is really some place you did discover and not just some planet that 1000's of others have been to. Secondly if I were a member of Starfleet or the Klingon Empire and I discovered a new planet I'd transmit the info back to hq and they'd take their time updating the planetary maps. It would be far more likely that a comrade would hear about this new planet from me first than they would from hq.
