Nicholas has 1 Command Counter left but elects to save it for use next round. He "passes".
Steve has no Command Counters remaining. He plays the "Technology" Strategy Card and adds the "Magen Defense Grid" technology.
Play resumes with Melissa.
Melissa has no ability to perform the Secondary Ability of this Strategy Card.
Nicholas is in the same shape.
Everyone has exercised the option to play the Secondary Ability from the Strategy Card Steve chose. He flips the Strategy Card over (Inactive) but leaves it in his area.
The game turn resumes with the next player action in order as specified by the numbers of the Strategy Cards.
Melissa is next and she passes; and Nicholas already passed. Steve passes too. The game proceeds to the Status Phase.
