How is this different than see a cop yelling "If you do this, Rocco you'll never see the outside of a prison again!!!" The cop has no idea what Rocco sentence might actually be, but he can speculate and use that to try and stop Rocco. Same for Styles and Kirk.
Where I draw a distinction is that Styles is seen gloating at other times in the film, which leaves me with the impression that he sees himself as superior to Kirk and the Enterprise crew. Not that there aren't snooty police officers, but I'd imagine most patrol officers don't inject a personal element into a situation. They're doing their jobs, but nothing more than that.

I don't see that line as an example of Styles feeling superior, just a prediction of a likely outcome. It wasn't personal
