The only people integral to the story are Kirk and Spock. Everything else is just fluffy stuff window dressing for Kirk and Spock. That includes Bone's bitching about things, Uhura kissing Spock, Marcus undoing torpedoes, Scotty faffing about..
It's Kirk and Spock vs their Enemy. And probably will be next movie.
TOS was never a so-called "ensemble show," and there's no reason that the new producers would turn it into one now.
