I recently found a Boarding Drone, but was wondering; do you need a teleporter to teleport the drone onto the enemy ship, or does it automatically spawn at a room in the enemy ship?

It will automatically fire across to board the enemy ship. Beware ships with defense drones, as they will shoot down a boarding drone just like it was a missile. That's also a great way to defend yourself against ships that use boarding drones on you.

Boarding drones don't help defend your ship, Anti-Personnel Drones do. – Robotnik Jun 28 '13 at 0:24
@Robotnik: He's saying Defense Drones are a good defense against Boarding Drones. – Ullallulloo Jun 28 '13 at 0:32
@Ullallulloo - Oh ok, misread that – Robotnik Jun 28 '13 at 1:03
To clarify "Defense Drones are a good defense against Boarding Drones" before they have landed on your ship. After they land, the Anti-Personnel Drones take over. :) – Costa Aug 1 '13 at 3:27
