But with JJ's Trek, we've not only gone back to the human dominant crew, we've also gone back to a male dominant crew.
What male dominant crew? Even on the bridge there were females all over the place besides Uhura.

Deja vu.
And Uhura is actually an important character in ST09 rather than eye candy/glorified extra.
Uhura seems to have a large and important part in "Into Darkness", too. And, Carol Marcus is an important character.

There were a lot of strong women characters in TOS, too. Aliens and otherwise. Lest we forget, the original First Officer of the Enterprise was cast as a woman, Number One. However, the future had to fit the present, and a woman first officer didn't fit into 1960s TV-viewing sensibilities.
