It seems this book should be read as a straight-forward adventure novel in the classical Star Trek style. Captain and crew encounter a strange planet, beam down and have your typical fights and encounters, complete with princess and gods. The eventually resolve the problem at the planet and then return back ship home. A light humorous style is used through-out, but as the plot doesn’t seem to have a central point and just rambles on, it becomes tedious after a while.
The only new point is that the planet is in a Dyson Sphere… but that only makes it VERY similar to an original episode.
Characterizations are ok, the plot and style are ok, but nothing really new or different is presented, a pretty mediocre effort, par for the course of these first novels.
