Just a gut feeling, but I think they may have chosen to keep the "Starblazers" name because they don't have much faith in--or understanding of--the knowledge of Western audiences. The producers may not think it will sell as well without the linkage. That being said, I would hope they wouldn't try to Westernize the story or the character names this time around, as fandom has demonstrated that it supports and prefers authenticity. They're not selling to a general syndicated late 70s-early 80s TV market anymore.
