Also, there is a reference in (6B2e), second to last paragraph:

In Fed Com, once two ships have become "joined" by a tractor beam, one ship controls movement (and has its base speed reduced by one or two steps) and the other cannot move at all (and has its base speed reduced to 0).

I don't think it's reduced to zero, it just becomes that of the towing ship minus-one as you said.

I was referring to the general shield-damage rules, not the rules for a ship moving into the asteroids on its own. If you shove somebody thorugh sideways, he takes the damage on the side.
