    Here's a little preview of the "brawl by the the bay" Bluray extra:

    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!

    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.

    Cover art mock-ups are usually raced to the marketing people to meet impossible deadlines. They aren't necessarily ever intended to be seen by the general public, especially pre-Internet. When the final product comes out the cover art is often changed/corrected.
