Starships controlled by races with this advantage active can perform a Tow Capture on fuelless starships by simply locking a tow beam on them. It is not necessary for the towing starship to move. This advantage works properly in a Debris Disk.
This advantage is enabled by default, but can be disabled. The Try to tow mission triggers this advantage, but a starship can use the Friendly Code NBR to keep the capture from occurring.
