The way I look at it is: 'Star fleet', as two words, is indeed a generic term that could apply to any space fleet. 'Starfleet', as ONE word, is a proper noun which applies to the fleet operated by the Federation (or the Terran Empire).

To put it another way: The Galactic Commonwealth maintains a star fleet, but not a Starfleet.

Hence, the game "Star Fleet Battles" is NOT called "Starfleet Battles", since even though it is based in the TrekU, it is more than about the forces deployed by the United Federation of Planets.
