Which of course doesn't matter, because when Spock met Kirk, he was a cadet, and would have the rank insignias to prove it.
Did he? At the time, Kirk just had the black undershirt on, not the gold tunic which indicates rank. Of course, the undershirt is a change to the original uniforms.
They used the black undershirts in TOS, the only difference was they were short sleeved.
