- faced off against a band of Klingon warriors while the men in the away-team hid in the ship?
- beamed down to a moving garbage scow where she shot and incapacitated the main villain of the movie?
I was glad to see Uhura get some screen time BUT the fact it was just her and a bunch of men on the ship is symptomatic of the problem the franchise has with its gender roles.
Putting Uhura on the volcano mission and beaming her down to help Spock instead of a few security guards was silly. Putting her on those missions alongside qualified personnel would have been fine.
