But it says STAR TREK right on the cover.

Why would you need to screw the ship up to let people know it's Star Trek?

If you can read "ENTERPRISE", you can read "STAR TREK", right?

They didn't screw up the ship. It's just a depiction of the Enterprise on a DVD/Blu-ray sleeve. Other depictions have shown the ship entirely blurred or with strange lights sticking out of it where there should be none. It's not like it's end of the world.
If you can read "ENTERPRISE", you can read "STAR TREK", right?
If it helps new or casual customers who are unfamiliar with NCC-1701 to see U.S.S ENTERPRISE in bold letters on the ship instead, what's the harm? It's not like it's going to look like that in the movie.

Helps them how?

Helps them understand they're looking at a Star Trek product about the Enterprise, as opposed to a Star Trek product that isn't about the Enterprise?

The point was that it doesn't help anything.

Of course it does if you look at it from the point of a Trek newbie or someone with only a casual interest in Trek. It's just a promotional image for the DVD/Blu-ray sales, nothing to get bent out of shape about.

He doesn't seem bent out of shape.

I wish I could meet some of the people who want to buy the new Star Trek movie but would be confused over the registry being on the ship...they sound like interesting folk to me.

They're probably just regular people who see the ship on the DVD/Blu-ray sleeve is named the Enterprise and that's enough for them.

"Star Track". Argh! But I have to laugh. I like the cover on the left. I preordered the DVD and I'm having withdrawals waiting for it to arrive in my hot little fan girl hands!

They deleted the hull registry and expanded the name of the ship for non-Trekkies to clearly know (with absolute certainty) it is the Enterprise.
That's like having the stone that the Statue of LIberty is holding say "Statue of Liberty" instead of "July IV M DCCL XXV" so that people who aren't Americans will know (with absolute certainty) it is the Statue of Liberty.

Plus if they're non-Trekkies, why would they care if it is the Enterprise or not? How would they even know what the Enterprise was?

That's going to quite an extreme. It's just the cover of a DVD/Blu-ray, not a crime against humanity.

Because many people aren't really Trekkies associate a spaceship named Enterprise with Star Trek, correction, "Star Track."

If they can read the word "Enterprise" they can also read the words "Star Trek".

Then it's good that they have both on the cover then.

The word you're looking for is "pointless".

If the cover says "Star Trek" that should be enough to let people know they're looking at a Star Trek product.

I only see the spine of the case 99.9% of the time. So the cover art doesn't bother me.

Actually, the words I'm looking for "Does it really hurt anyone?"

Same here, but it apparently strongly bothers a few.
