Regardless of whose choice it is, I just think the scene works better with that swelling score that accentuates Kirk's sense of panic in TWOK.
Sometimes a good performance doesn't need music to carry it.
This one did, cause it was just lame. You know they're not going to kill him yet. They telegraph it throughout the movie they can cheat death. You didn't know that the first time you saw TWOK. But I guess it moves so fast, maybe the average viewer doesn't notice.
But hang on... this movie is edited differently. It can't be lame because it's the same and also lame because it's different (although that is the argument that seems to be all over the net). The sequence that takes Spock from the Command Chair to where Kirk is is all of 5 seconds. Is it your contention that this 5 seconds required a score, and without its own score, is "lame".

Then when Spock goes to Kirk, the piano/strings theme kicks in. It's very haunting, although on Giacchino's album it's called somewhat frivolously "Buying the Space Farm".
