A Republic tugboat uses its tractor beam to guide another starship

"We're caught in a tractor beam! It's pulling us in!"
Han Solo[src]

A tractor beam was a projected force field that manipulated gravitational forces to push or pull objects.[1] Such devices were employed on some vessels, creating an energy field that allowed them to lock onto and move other vessels or objects.[2]

Vessels employing tractor beams included the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer,[3] the MC80 star cruiser,[4] and the Republic tugboat.[2] The Death Star also contained a tractor beam and used it to draw the Millennium Falcon into one of the battlestation's hangar bays.[5]
