NORFOLK, Va.  — The USS Enterprise is deploying without its former commander as Navy brass investigates bawdy, sexually themed videos he showed to thousands of crew members.

The investigation will keep Capt. Owen Honors off the bridge of one of the Navy's storied aircraft carriers Thursday as it deploys from Virginia to support troops in Afghanistan.

Honors is expected to be at his desk job, where he was reassigned on the eve of his first command of an aircraft carrier.

He was permanently relieved by the commander of U.S. Fleet Forces for "his profound lack of good judgment" during his stint as executive officer on the Enterprise.

The Navy is investigating his production and shipboard broadcast in 2006 and 2007 of videos that included gay slurs, sailors in showers, and simulated masturbation.
