An interesting possibility. Kirk does refer to ambassadors by their job position, to McCoy by his occupation. In the future miss and mrs. have returned to common use, and Kirk uses them both.

If D'Amato were to have been knighted at some point in his past, would Kirk on occasion use that title in referring to D'Amato?
Except that the honorific "Sir" (or "Dame") precedes the given name, not the surname.
