Re: Enterprise-D's Spotlights (TNG "Pegasus")

Didn't spacedock have something similar?

Also, the TNG Tech Manual mentions something about mooring tractors built along with the RCS thrusters. Perhaps these are low-level tractor beams that in Spacedock's case, keeps ships still (but will break if a ship begins to move as in Star Trek: 3) but in the Galaxy Class case, it keeps the ship from bumping into walls in such confined spaces.
