Should Kirk's frustration-fueled rash decision to put Ensign Sue in the brig (where she finally finds she's brought down to normal) count as a Kick the Dog moment and later a Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! one when he realizes she's the only one who seemed to care about helping them—and his action now suddenly might have tossed her to the Dark Side (especially when Anna Mae Sue freed her, Ensign Sue has a steeled look on her face, meaning she's not about to be fooled again by her "Captain" showing his "true colors").

And faced with internal monologuing to get his head straight, Empress Sue razzes "Nice dramatic monologuing. You're really getting in touch with your inner Sue!"

I know this is late, but whatever: No to Kick the Dog, at that point Ensign Sue was still acting like she always had up to that point. She even blurts out a reference to her "worms" origin story as she's being dragged away, and it's only after her attempt to break out of the brig using New Powers as the Plot Demands that it turns out she's de-Sueifying. She doesn't cooperate as a normal character until later on; she still acts very Sueish when Kirk verbally beats her down.
