No deflector dish on the space station?

Whether it can also be reconfigured to emit an antiproton beam ... or become an interplexing beacon to reach the Delta Quadrant ... this is why we need a main deflector dish "out in front" of the International Space Station!

WASHINGTON — The crew of the international space station had a close call with space junk Thursday. The three astronauts briefly took refuge inside a Russian escape capsule before returning inside the space station. Officials were worried that the orbiting outpost might get hit with a small piece of passing space debris. Tiny pieces of debris could cause a fatal loss of air pressure in the station. ...

By the way—how did we miss the 10th anniversary of the ISS last Nov. 20th? Here's a belated happy birthday wish to this oft-overlooked but ongoing next platform in the final frontier.

What direction would they aim the dish at from moment to moment? And could the computing hardware driving it keep up?
