Maya: "Say it! Say it to the world now and no more blood will be spilled!"
Riker: "There is nothing to say. You believe in lies."
Maya: "Heh, when will you tire of killing your own men, Mr. Riker?"

The Cost is the seventh campaign mission of Everwar: Black Widow. After the Santa Clara base was completely taken over, the survivors of the siege moved quickly to Las Vegas, the dedicated assembly point for any post-attack meetings. While there, a blackout is caused, and feed is taken over by WiDOW. After telling them that every light will die, several thermite charges are detonated at the base of the building causing a collapse. In the debris, the survivors are pinned by Truth Locker members led by Maya.
