A tractor beam is a modified force field that can immobilize and move objects caught within its influence. An emitting tower, called a tractor beam projector, produces the beams, though range and strength are determined by the power source that runs it.
Tractor beams serve a number of important functions. In spaceports and hangar bays, tractor beams help guide ships to a safe landing. Salvage vessels, cargo haulers, emergency craft, and engineering ventures all employ tractor beams to assist them in their jobs.
On military ships, tractor beams can be used to capture enemy vessels or simply hold them in place while offensive weaponry can be brought to bear.
Tractor beams automatically disable the weapons systems of the target ship. You can attempt to escape from tractor beams by trying to change speeds.
