If you read the books and the comics...yeah, that's pretty much what he was. The "captain Kirk fucking the alien chick for the week" trope. Hell it was such a prevalent image of the character, that DC comics did a issue lamp-shading the concept when a young cadet on a training ship gets command after the death of the Captain and ends up nearly gets the crew killed and starts a war with the Romulans cause he was trying to be like Captain Kirk.
I loved that issue, DC Comics #47 (first run).
*image snip*
The whole last half of DC's first run was great for hauling Kirk over the coals for his past decisions.
The Return of the Serpent three-parter was awesome.
