Re: Spock's the best 1st Officer in Starfleet?

Watching "Amok Time", and it was said that Spock is the best First Officer in Starfleet. This is after he's kidnapped his old CO, falsified orders, hijacked Enterprise and set course for the forbidden world Talos IV. And in this episode, he apparently killed his CO, after altering the ship's course from Altair to Vulcan against orders. This man is the best XO in Starfleet!? The standards must be low!
Perhaps Janeway's assessment of 23rd century Starfleet was quite accurate.

It's not surprising they had to bend the rules a little. They were a little slower to invoke the Prime Directive and a little quicker to pull their phasers. Of course, the whole bunch of them would be booted out of Starfleet today.
