^Then what happens if 2 Polaris class ships need to dock?
Then they would have to find a workaround. They're not Star Trek ships; they can't do everything at any time. Nor are they military spacecraft designed to operate as part of a fleet of ships. I'm not even sure how many Zodiac class ships exist; they're not turned out on an assembly line and may almost never encounter one another. How often did Serenity hard-dock with another Firefly class ship?

Why would they have to dock? There are large hatches for cargo transfer as well as hatches for crew and work craft. It's also not unreasonable that ships other than the landing boats might under some circumstances have access to those docking areas.
Questions for Vektor really.

I just pointed out a possible problem (in universe) with your solution to the docking issue.

Stringing lines can work nearly as well, though from a VFX point of view it's more costly to film than someone walking down a corridor.
