Abrams-Trek gives us even more of the impression of a human dominated Federation, moreso than the original series even did.
Were you not seeing the plethora
of Bad Robot's aliens in Starfleet?
They did suggest we'd possibly see an Andorian in "Star Trek (2009)" - and we didn't - but there were given plenty of aliens, some with important scenes (Gaila, Keenser), and there was probably more variety that ST:TMP's rec deck and San Francisco or ST IV's Council scenes.
Not many TOS aliens were shown to be in Starfleet in TOS. For that we had to wait for TAS and TMP.
