A deflector beam, sometimes referred to as a meteorite beam[1], was an energy discharge produced by a starship's main navigational deflector for use in clearing obstructions from the vessel's path. A deflector beam was highly adaptable and could be reconfigured for a variety of purposes.


In 2254, the USS Enterprise encountered a disturbance traveling toward them at the speed of light, which was not deflected by the meteorite beam. However, it was eventually realized that the disturbance was caused by an old-style radio wave distress signal which was designed to cause interference and attract attention[1].
