Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Though Officer Evax first appeared on a card for the A New Hope Limited expansion set of Decipher's Star Wars Customizable Card Game, he does not actually appear in the film. His picture was merely one of many convincing images created artificially for cards in the SWCCG, using a scene from A New Hope as the background.
