Weather Control is out. The Judges are stretched as some alien residents are in temporary housing while new quarters are being built.
Dredd is running on empty when he is assigned to the alien sector and Sector Chief Caine. This Caine has a similar temperament and personality to Admiral Caine, from Battlestar Galactica, if you are familiar with that character.
Not helping the situation are a couple of xenophobic Judges on Caine's team, and past history between one of them and another.
Dredd and Caine don't get along, and the situation deteriorates.
Judges die, plots are revealed and it seems Chief Judge Hershey had a plan all along.
