None that I know of. Right now I think any prospective large docks would be using either a larger aperture between the ships or ship to station or whatever your docking with or upsizing the 'docks' astronauts use to get in and out of the ISS.

No, the energy requirements of something like that would be quite ridiculous. What looks good in movies and video games is not necessarily a good idea in reality.
