Vesta runs a Russian Roulette-type game in the V-World in which players and hangers-on bet on whether weapons selected by a spin of a wheel would or would not have a round in the chamber. Tamara Adama came to Vesta asking for help in leaving the V-World. Vesta shot her, expecting Tamara to de-rez and be ejected, but was amazed when that did not happen. Vesta arranged for Tamara to do something to pay her way home. However, Vesta learned that the real Tamara was dead. In the V-World Tamara, proclaiming, "I'm awake," shot Vesta.
