think of this the defiants engine room is the same size as the galaxy ship. It is said that the defiant and galaxy share the same engine. What the difference is the engine power goes to weapons more than on the bigger ships. Same engine different usage. As for tractor beams on the danube. That ship is the equivalent of a tug boat. A tug boats engine can stop a ship of the line dead in the water if pulling the oposite way. So if the runabout is a tug boat the engine would be set for pulling therefor it Can stop a bigger ship. As for the runabouts the cat carrier uses the tractor beam doesnt fire enough for them to be usefull IMHO.
