Smith Toren is a member of the Top Squadron aboard the space battleship Exellion.  Aboard the ship he befriends Noriko during a dare that both he and she had to complete.  However, the two of them get caught by "Coach" and are assigned to cleaning the laser cannon lenses as punishment.  Later that day Noriko discovers that Kazumi no longer wants her as a partner and is crushed.  To try and cheer her up, Smith offers to be Noriko's new partner and the two of them sign up as a team.  Later on the Exellion comes under attack by space monsters.  The Top Squadron sorties for the first time and the two of them go out as partners.  However, Noriko freezes up and is unable to do anything.  Smith tries to calm her down but Noriko stays in a shocked state and floats in space for several minutes.  The order soon goes out to return to the ship, and Noriko is crushed to find that Smith never returned.

Influence on Noriko

Smith's death was the major catalyst that caused Noriko to grow from a girl with no confidence in herself into one that believes in herself and became capable of piloting Gunbuster.  The headband that Smith tied to a pole for her as part of the dare they were both on stayed on Noriko's head ever since Smith's death.  Noriko often looks back at Smith whenever she needs inspiration to push herself to the limit.  She also made a promise to Smith after his death that she would never cry again so no one else would lose their life.
