Remembering the men of the USS Frank E. Evans.
On their next turn if they are still overwhelmed (with creative use of abilities it is possible to become un-overwhelmed) they are forced to pass. And yes this can be really bad, but that adds a level of strategy of not taking big risks early on but it is ok later (when being overwhelmed doesn't leave a huge deck for everyone else to deal with alone). I also would say Samurai Spirit is better the closer you are to the full 7.
Thanks for the reply; I really appreciate it!
