Todd Hewitt lives on New World, having come from earth to colonize. But New World has a strange effect on the men, their thoughts are voiced out loud. They call it the noise. After a war with the native species (the Spakle) all the women were killed, leaving a settlement of only men who must learn to live with their noise. But when Todd Hewitt finds a girl among the wreckage of a spaceship everything changes.
Ian admits that he swears a lot more in his mind than we can imagine. Javier questions everyone's motives. JJ is pleasantly surprised and disappointed at the same time. Mattson questions what thoughts were left out.
