After all, there haven't been any female admirals seen in the Abramsverse yet. In the movies or comics. At least not prominently.
And that's a shame. Gender proportion seems to revert to the male dominated 1960s in the 23rd century. Off-topic, though.

The movies are exciting, of course, but to reach a wide audience they invariably follow the model of 'our heros vs. evil villain, to save Earth from doom', whereas the comics can actually delve into truly intriguing ideas - extragalactic Gorn, a mirror universe in the new style, genderbending the characters, visiting the Tribble homeworld, a Klingon-Romulan war, Beta III as failed Human colony, etc.
