Are tractor beams currently implemented and capable of grabbing a ship? If so what are the limits to how long it can be used?

They are, but you can only use them to pull a vehicle or ship into your docking/hangar bay.

Ok thats good news. I thought that someone was going to stop my ship with tractor beams. Good thing they don't have a hanger for fighters.

They only work if both the target and the operating entity are owned by the same party anyway. (or possibly if they're commanded or operated by the same, never tried)

You can only tractor in ships that you own, are pilot of and likely if you are commander of. Otherwise it just won't work. Makes docking ships and especially satellites much easier than walking onto each one and manually docking them.
