When I'm running at full speed on my carrier or even half they should be able to slow me but not stop me instantaneously, that is ludicrous. If they slapped a beam on me it should rip the emmiter to pieces. We are talking even at impulse speeds a significant amount of speed and mass at the same time. However the technology of the beams would of course mach up somewhat to compensate. Still I think the op is correct in saying there should be an inverse proportion of damage.

Even at full stop I should be able to get moving again. This has been shown in many episodes when you hear "captain I don't know how much longer we can hold this tractor beam lock".
actually the kids would hit you where you dont wanna be hit while trying to grab your leg you bend forward and break your nose as the kids swarm you and tie you up like you are gulliver. Seriously you would think you could mow them over but it really hurts doing that even when they are 30 pounds and your 300.
