One thing I still donīt understand - when they seem now to be able to beam peope right across the galaxy (I guess Earth-Kronos is pretty far away), why do they need starships at all?

Starships aren't taxis.
They still need starships to do any meaningful exploration, go to unknown\uncharted places, do all sorts of analysis with the scientific instruments and sensors onboard etc etc
They still need starships for defense. What good is beaming going to be when the Klingon or Romulan fleet shows up?
