Does the left side ball lock on Star Trek LE ever send the ball back down the playfield, as opposed to the VUK kicking it up on to the wire rails? I noticed that there is a deflector above the VUK that looks like it's there to send the ball back along the playfield, but it only seems to rotate out of the way so that the ball can be kicked straight up to the wire rails.

Is this rotating deflector merely there to ensure the ball shot into the lock stays there, or is it a deflector to send the locked ball back down the playfield?

My STLE always kicked it up into the wireform. That's the way it is designed.

On mine, it kicks back to the playfield maybe 1 out of 1,000 times.

Mine spits it out on the playfield after the ball gets stuck on top of the diverter and it does the ball search.
