I am still a little unclear what everybody does after WAR is resolved. Let's pretend three players all just battled each other. Nobody's ship was destroyed. It is assumed that the two non-turn players have stuff on their bridge at this point. Does it all stay there? Or is it discarded? And if so, are you then left playing your turn with only a couple cards in your hand?
Which leads me to my next question - if whatever cards you played do indeed stay on your bridge until the end of your next turn, do any "shields" stats (which would have most likely been surpassed in damage during war) then "recharge" for your post-war turn? Or are you shields considered to be "down" for your next turn?
