The answer is it's not really in Doona or Brain/Brawn -- Anne just borrowed elements from those worlds for this story.

The reason to me that it's very clearly not in Doona, is the peaceful approach to other species is gone -- there's no feeling in this story that conflict/wars with aliens are to be avoided at all costs, as there is in Doona.

Call in an alternate universe.
