Summary from now-defunct webpage at

Third Rail and Brickhouse decide to leave the Syndicate because of Wise Son. Garden Station, command center for the Amber sector of S.Y.S.T.E.M., is attempting to create custom-made bang babies. We learn more of their plan and how they mean to control the babies. Agent Rose double-crosses Mom and destroys the Garden Station and the test subjects. We see Karess, Babe, Masquerade, Oro, Templo and the Cross Station survivor survive the Garden Station war.
