Alternately you could leave Kirk as an admiral commanding a squadron, with his old bridge crew as the commanders of the ships making up the squadron.
A squadron implies they are a straight up miltiary force and not exploritory vessels anymore.
Regardless of what it implies, it was established in "The Ultimate Computer".

That's just not Trek. A bunch of ships together in force wouldn't help dramatic storytelling.
TNG and DS9 did it fairly dramatically.
