why do they need to tell the computer what the stardate is
doesn't it already know the current time

@twitter Verification or checksum type thing?

Or plausible deniability built-in fsr if you wanted to backdate entries. "Captain's Log, stardate (two days ago). I arrived at my friend's place who can vouch for me that I'm totally here on Earth and not anywhere near the Romulan Neutral Zone..."

@twitter I like to think their star date system is so illogical it can't be calculated by a computer
