Like Kirk says in "The Wrath of Khan" (to Kirstie Alley's character): "Prayers, Mister Saavik. The Romulans don't take captives."
Maybe a change in policy, there, for females? Because it was "Miss Uhura" a few times in TOS.
There's no naval precedent for addressing a female officer as "Mister," and AFAIK, no other female Starfleet officer was ever addressed as "Mister." I assumed she was called "Mister Saavik" only because someone thought it sounded cute.
