so in that supposed case it might be a good idea to have more than one.

I have to say that I honestly thought that is how they would work until I tested them out. The fact that I can still board an immobilized ship without them seems to limit their utility. From a purely technical standpoint, I think boarding actions should only be allowed if you have blast doors or boarding pods (since blast doors fit on a turret and appear to be exterior door systems). That would give reason to use both, and would limit the options available to ships without those systems. It would also make blast doors useful (right now I do not see any use in them since they take critical slots). You could also limit boarding activity to only be undertaken by ships with marines.
