there is very little chance to catch Tim whispering anything to himself, so you won't hear any information from him, actually you are not sure of what kind of information you can get from just listening through the door, maybe realizing that the engine is actually NOT RUNNING and therefore the place is NOT loud AT ALL? okay it did explain a bit further why the ship has stopped moving
is he losing his mind in there? maybe you should interfere with whatever he is doing, or you could just follow your instinct and get the hell out of here
