Spock: "Thrusters on full..."?

I sort of get the emotional idea behind it, but why, really, in the last scene at the academy, where Spock's watching Kirk's accolades, does he say "Thrusters on full..." before the final sequence of the Enterprise? Is he remembering his days on the ship, or something? It captures a good emotion of the moment but still doesn't really seem to actually make sense for him to say that there.
