It is... ok.
I don't find the opportunity cost of losing a console worth it, but its not horrible in the right builds. Gal-X to hold things in your front arc comes to mind... Maybe some other low sci-slot ships could get some use out of it as well. In most situations you are better of actually slotting tractor beam instead, it will be up far more often.
Interesting note, it benefits from Tractor Beam Officer doffs, so you can make it a shield drain, as well... but for a doff slot you really want to be loading the skill to get more use out of it. The cooldown on the grappler is 3 minutes (?) that is a really long downtime to dedicate a doff to...
