Steve decides to execute his Strategy Card 6 "Warfare". This allows him to remove one of his Command Counters from the board and place it back into his Command Pool on his Race sheet.
Steve now has 3 Command Counters again in his Command Pool, and most importantly, the system having his Carrier is no longer activated. The Carrier can move next time he plays.
Since he played a Strategy Card, the other players around the table have the option of performing the Secondary Ability on the card. For this Secondary Strategy activity, play resumes clockwise around the table beginning on his left. Then play resumes in normal turn order.
Melissa has the option of performing the Secondary Ability for Strategy Card 6.
