It's been awhile since I read Strange Dogs and thought the kid was less obviously together. Cortazar explicitly says at one point that issues arose from the drones not being aware of the difference between maturation and aging, and that he really needed an adult test subject to get a better idea so I think him being an adult is part of it.

How did they never see the blackout effect? ), and then proceeds to piss things off in surprising ways. Also, he uses awesome goop to gain power. I'm pretty sure it said in this book that they hadn't fired it at all until the slow zone which seems... Awfully confident your tech is going to work.
