And in the third season ("The Paradise Syndrome") they featured the (unconventional?) use of the main deflector to deflect the asteroid to alter its course (before Spock applies the "diamond-cutting" Plan B to destroy the asteroid by phasers).
In the original FX of the episode, it was not shown where the deflection beam came from and the dialogue specified multiple deflectors and not a single main deflector.
SPOCK: Prepare to activate deflectors.

SPOCK: Activate deflectors.
In the TOS-R FX, the deflector beam is shown coming from a point next to the dish and not from the dish itself.
