I forgive the newly made for any slippage, but anyone over 40 making this mistake aught to be sent to counsellor troi for re-education.

I listened to Tom Ashbrook on NPR's On Point on Friday. Nimoy was his guest and he STILL said Star Wars once instead of Star Trek. Letterman has done it too. Give it time. We're in the Star Trek age now. It'll catch on.

I had it happen to me. A very nice young lady who worked at a restaurant I ate at made that mistake. When she said "are you goin' to see Star Wars?", I just smiled and said "Star Trek". Her face did the most beautiful blush and she said "Star Trek." and I said "You're damn right I am." and she smiled at me. That was a good moment.

What, are you kidding? That's part of the draw the got me to see it. JJ Abrams admitted that he was more of a Star Wars fan, I figured this film would be a much needed reboot to Star Trek AND be the Star Wars Episode 1 that I wanted to see 10 years ago.

THAT's why I went, and this film delivered like no other! Thank you JJ Abrams, I doubted the heck out of you... but you pulled through and showed me otherwise.

That offends me much more than the Star Wars slip.
Confusing the two franchises is a simple mistake.
Calling it "Star Track" is more along the lines of illiteracy, complacency, or just plain stupidity.

To play Devil's Advocate here:

It could also be a case of dialect.

Believe me, I used to live in West Virginia (and am originally from there), and sometimes some of those folks had deep Southern drawls that drove me nuckin' futz!

Trash was sometimes pronounced "traish".
Can't was cain't.
Sometimes those folks might actually be saying Trek, but it just comes across like "Track."

Regardless, one thing I learned to do on my own with great alacrity was learn to speak properly.

Don't mind.

I as a Trekkie & Warser know:
It's also the other way around, they meant Star Wars and say Star Trek.

At a convention last year, I had to listen to some nerd ask Avery Brooks - Captain Sisko himself - how he got involved with Stargate
