A reformed gambler of many years begins talking of going home to Lulungameena, a paradise planet. His young crew member on the star ship is tired of hearing about the paradise and tries to get him to gamble with him in a game. A race of truth-tellers come aboard. The young crewman forces the gambler into a bet, and uses the truth-teller to confirm whether Lulungameena is the paradise it is made out to be. He loses his bet. The old gambler now has enough money to buy his passage off the ship. But just what is Lulungameena? Hints arise that it is a fictional place, or a dump. Then why did the truth teller back up the gambler?
