Uhura is the token female silly. It's all the other characters you need to look at when assessing how sexist the movie was.
You need to look at both, actually. The missed opportunities as well as the actual portrayal of women in the movie.

Plus if a sci fi franchise built on the premise of equality is as sexist as the average popcorn movie, don't you think that is a failure on the part of the writers?
No, because I don't agree that Star Trek was built on the premise of equality. Its most recent incarnation is just as sexist as the franchise has always been.

Ooh - and please comment on this fanfic I wrote:
