Hmh? You seem awfully uptight about our TOS hero and his supposed honor. Why the deadly serious attitude?
I have been diagnosed with a severe allergy to bullshit. The symptoms include a disturbingly low tolerance for people who intentionally say things that are obviously false or nonsensical just to make a rhetorical point.

The thing about Kirk is that he is not a modern hero. He is a cluster of cliches from half a century back, relying on morals deriving from the preceding centuries. Positing morals and attitudes on this caricature is like shooting fish in a barrel
Unless you are prepared to posit morals and attitudes that genuinely reflect the characters as depicted, I'm going to have to request that you cut the bullshit.
