Adapted from the sci-fi novel "Oms en série" by Pierre Pairault (under the pseudonym Stefan Wul). Although the film follows the book's basic premise more or less faithfully, there are significant differences. The movie places great emphasis on the Draags' meditation ceremonies, making them a vital part of the climax as the Oms threaten to disrupt them, which would doom the Draags to extinction. The book doesn't touch on this subject at all, and the climax involves an actual weaponized conflict between the two species. The film ends with the Oms moving to an artificial moon, while in the book, they settle on an uninhabited island. See more

The German dub changes the dialogue for the Draag council's discussion about the Om extermination. In the original dialogue, Master Taj says that Oms have caused trouble in the region of Telez, and the regions Goham and Urtana have reported similar activities. In German, Taj says that de-Om-izing has failed in Goham, as well as in "Xylan" and "Ultrabanatus". These names do not come up in the original French version. See more
