Spock implication is that Kirk looks like the Nazi ideal.
Yeah, that's how I always took the line, too (especially compared with Spock's own very different appearance).
The joke works on two level, too, as it might also double as a quip about Kirk's command style, but with Spock's usual deadpan, it's hard to tell. I guess that's Vulcan humour for you.
