Yeah, CBS has copyright on "Starship Enterprise" which covers any spaceship with that name in TV/film.
Really? That sounds kind of pathetic, actually.
This includes alternate prefixes, like the "EAS" used on B5? It's not like viewers would be dumb enough to confuse the two.
No, it makes sense. Any work that features a prominent fictional spaceship named Enterprise
is treading on ice CBS/Paramount already owns; they should pick their own name if they want a spaceship. (And it's probably a trademark, not a copyright.)
