Well like I said to Quark, who was the most expendable Starfleet officer with the knowlege on that ship? Kirk.
The E-B had a limited crew, the civilians couldn't do it. Scotty and Chekov were allready helping.
Would Kirk on TOS/Movies have handed his bridge over under the same circumstances? No, he would have done what Harriman did.
