Chuck Beatty remembers Ed Parkin as his fellow inmate, his bunkmate, and his jailer.

From 1996 to 2003, Chuck spent seven years in the Sea Org's prison detail, the Rehabilitation Project Force. The RPF was originally dreamed up by L. Ron Hubbard in the 1970s while he was running Scientology from the yacht Apollo. It was a punishment that crew members could be put on to teach them the error of their ways, depriving them of any comforts or even the ability to speak to other crewmates, and allowed them to work their way back into the good graces. It was supposed to last a few months.

But two decades later, while Scientology had moved onto land, the RPF had become a punishment that lasted years, cutting its members off entirely from the outside world.

The night 1999 became 2000, Chuck remembers sitting in his desert prison camp east of Los Angeles, wondering what was happening at celebrations around the world.
