Kirk: "Care to make a guess?"
Spock: "Guess? I shall need further data for my estimate."

only the transaltion of the Spock part is relevant:

"Tja ich weiß nicht Captain, sieht aus wie die Puderdose meiner Mutter"

"I dunno Captain, looks like my mother's powder tin."
Actually, this seems like an attempt to make the scene funny. But of course... Spock joking...

it's also funny that the German translation translated Warp occassionally with Sol and later turned around to just calling it Warp. No idea why they would do that.
