That just looks dumb, not to mention totally inaccurate.
I just don't understand how it can bother anyone? I've seen plenty of inaccurate interpretations of the ship over the years.
Because it's pointless. Is having the name of the ship rather than it's registry number really going to make someone more likely to buy the movie? As if they would pass on it until looking closer and realizing that, oh hey, that's the Enterprise! I would think anyone who would buy it would already know that that ship is the Enterprise or at least know that NCC-1701 = Enterprise.
Not everyone who buys this movie is a long-time, card-carrying Trekkie (some aren't even buying it for themselves, but for others they know who are Trekkies). Such people don't pay attention to the NCC-1701 registry at all (it's just a bunch of random numbers to them), but they're more familiar with the name U.S.S. Enterprise. They know U.S.S. Enterprise = "Star Track."
