Honestly, blow for blow, the Imperium is able to hit harder in warfare, especially when you get into the more exotic tech of the Imperium such as Titans and other shit. The only problem with that is that the Imperium simply can't replace the really good shit as fast as anyone in Star Wars can, especially if we get to the Galactic Empire, Revan's Sith Empire, the Rakatan Infinite Empire, or the Zakuulan Eternal Empire. The Galactic Empire, believe it or not, has entire worlds dedicated to the production of materials for their war machine, just like the Imperium has. They can replace their big ships faster, their fleets can move faster in FTL, they can field armies just as large as the Imperium (if not larger, seeing as the Imperium owns only half of the Milky Way, compared to the Empire holding almost every star system in the Star Wars galaxy. The SW galaxy is larger than the Milky Way by about 25,000 light years, by the way), and their overall military technology is equal to or superior to their Imperium counterparts.
And we aren't even getting into the Legends capabilities of the Empire. If we wanted to get into Legends, then the military and production capabilities only start to get better. But this isn't the Empire being invaded, this is the Republic pre-Clone Wars. That is just an unfair match-up, since the Republic literally had no true military force before the unveiling of the Clone Army at the First Battle of Geonosis. They had relatively few warships that were really just offered up by various species, star systems, and corporations that were all limited in their firepower and overall military efficiency by the Ruusan Reformations. If you want to have a match up that is more fair, you should have had the Imperium invade when the Clone Troopers were first issued their Phase II armor. Any later, and things start to get a little unfair as the military-industrial complex and the technology in use is getting closer and closer to what the Empire had, especially in Legends.
On the ground, the average Imperial Guardsman will be outclassed in nearly every way by the Clone Trooper. Clone Troopers are quite literally bred for war, their morale is almost as steadfast as the Space Marines (essentially, they aren't gonna be breaking anytime soon), and they are actually modified in the breeding process to be stronger and have more stamina than a typical soldier. Even against Space Marines, they can become a threat when the situation is righta good defensive or offensive position, sufficient numbers, and what are essentially more efficiently plasma rifles (their blasters). An Imperial Guard stormtrooper could go toe to toe with the Clones, but they still suffer from many of the same characteristics that other Guardsmen have.
And, of course, the good ol' Jedi vs. Space Marine debate. Really, there's no question to it: the Force and their lightsabers offer them clear advantages that the standard Astartes will have trouble contending with. The Force has obvious advantages such as precognition (knowing when, where, and how the opponent will attack, like an Eldar), extremely advanced telekinetic abilities, agility and speed that will make even some Eldar nod in approval, etc. The lightsabers would more than likely chew through chain swords and the ranged weapons the Space Marines use without effort, while their ceramite power armor will likely be somewhat easy to get through in the relatively thin parts (face, hands, forearms) or in the gaps, probably offering the same kind of resistance they'd get in cutting through durasteel doors or other super dense things. If this is a Dark Jedi or, Emperor forbid, a Sith Lord, the Space Marine would probably just have his skull or ribcage caved in by their own armor, or be otherwise torn apart in violent ways. Psykers... eh, even match, victor is case by case.
Up in space, it's rather situational. If the Republic has superior numbers, or a Mandator II-class dreadnaught (roughly 18-19 kilometers longWAY bigger than anything the Imperial Armada has), then the Republic has a good chance of winning. If they don't have that dreadnaught or they happen to be outnumbered, then the Imperium would likely win.
Titans would be an issue, no doubt, but they aren't invincible. Enough firepower will bring them downsomething pretty much any Star Wars faction can produce.

Pretty interesting Story :D Especially the way you described the way the Inquisitor is thinking about heretics and this new galaxy. I would love it if you would continue this Story as the killing of anikan enables a completely new storyline that would be very interesting to read.
For the emperor. In his Radiant light we shal find victory

And about FTL imperial ships ftl is 5000 lighears per day which is not slow. They take so much because of the time instability in warp. But in the Star Wars there is no chaos there is no corrupton it is possible that the great ocean will be calm there. And when people say blitzed the should know to destroy the enemy you must fight him , and in terms of firepower Imprrium has the advantage. They are heavy hitters here.

Remember Imperium outnumbers everyone. Hive world's have population from 50 billion to 2 trillions hive worlds in total. Have worlds contain only 7 precent of entire population of the imperium. If we do a little math we get 1.61900000000000000000000 people and that's just 7 precent. In total we get over 2266600000000000000000000. So yeah Republic doesn't outnumber them in any way.

Please continued this story.

This seems like it could be a great story but a force user could overwhelm even elite space marines. You need maybe three or more of them to defeat a jedi as jedi are able to use force push and other such basic force powers effortlessly.

To that guest who thinks that the Republic, or Empire or any of the star wars universe could even remotely defeat the Imperium in an all out war is wrong. I am not going to start spewing scifi fact because it is simply fiction. However, I will state this, The Imperium is stagnant but it is the current superpower of the Warhammer Universe and dwarfs all its opponents when it comes to direct might. In the Starwars universe, the republic, empire and all style of government had some strength but they get beaten by every tom, dick and harry that come along.
The Imperium is built on war and the Republic is built on peace… That is the difference.
So Starwars stomping the I.O.M is just willful thinking by a noob who obviously hasn't or has just skimmed this much more in-depth universe…

Very interesting fic, I quite liked it.
| Blinded in a bolthole chapter 1 . 3/15/2014
An interesting read. The main problem with this story is the massive size of paragraphs, some looking much better if broken in two or three separate paragraphs. This also makes finding and following conversations very hard.

Awesome. Just awesome.

(((you do realize that the Star Wars faction winning against the Imperium all depends on the circumstance and what faction is currently in power)))
yes of course the old old republic gets stomped due to pathetic tech and the new republic is just a couple thousand systems in all.
(((the Republic or Empire, as it stands this is during the Phantam Malice era, currently the Imperium could defeat the Republic,)))
no...they really cant. sw has industry far beyond what the i.o.m has demonstrated and yes i am not ignoring the forge worlds
sw has a class of planets that are made of garbage and can ring star systems while the i.o.m has planets(only)plastered in citys/factorys
((of course it's going to take more than just one crusade fleet))
(((though it usually depends on the size of the Imperial forces deployed.)))
im not catching on to what you just said.
(((However even if the Republic did get it's acts together, it still going to take time to create the first batch of Clone soldiers)))
the clones were an elite mega army that overran there previous armed forces because they were just so increasing better then anything else
the republic always HAD an army on standby...a shit army...but it always was there on the battlefield fighting droids and clone or no the republic still outnumbers the i.o.m
(((as well as a professional Fleet,)))
the empire built 25,000 isd 1s in 1 year along with all the other classes of star destryers the empire made.(theirs alot of sub classes for the i.s.d)
they built the death star as a secret project
they did it all with there MOTHERFUKIN INDUSTRY.
the cis plasterd worlds with factorys by the end oft the clone wars.
palps can ship a planets water to deep space
and theres the planets that are made of garbage
the republic can build a fleet pretty dam fast.
(((which would take at the very least a decade.)))
(((by that time the Imperium would've already taken large parts of the republic to the point that while the Republic could be able to make a counter offense they still wouldn't be able to push the Imperium completely out.)))
the iom dosent have ftl that far out from the golden throne in the first place and wh40k warp travel is one of the slowest f.t.l forms in sci-fi history
also the republic will strike back so hard with there uber fast battleships and insane industry as well as a newly united senite by palpatine means that any defence by the i.o.m is going to be blitzed.
(((as it currently stands I see this ending in a stalemate.)))
i see a stomp

you do realize that the Star Wars faction winning against the Imperium all depends on the circumstance and what faction is currently in power the Republic or Empire, as it stands this is during the Phantam Malice era, currently the Imperium could defeat the Republic, of course it's going to take more than just one crusade fleet, though it usually depends on the size of the Imperial forces deployed.
However even if the Republic did get it's acts together, it still going to take time to create the first batch of Clone soldiers as well as professional Fleet, which would take at the very least a decade. by that time the Imperium would've already taken large parts of the republic to the point that while the Republic could be able to make a counter offense they still wouldn't be able to push the Imperium completely out. as it currently stands I see this ending in a stalemate.

i wonder what the jedi order will do when they find out that theres a bazillion force users(psykers) that are more powerful then any Jedi seen before, including anikan, palps and yoda?
how will roth react to an civ massively larger then the i.o.m be unwilling to battle his fleet and instead want to open trade routes and maake peace?
how do the eldar respond to finding out that the i.o.m found a new major power before they did. and that they are peaceful?
chaos man! chaos is going to be jumping with glee at the prospect of a large group of non psyker protected mortals that outnuber the i.o.m 100 to 1
the crons are going to be pissed about chaos and are eather going to start protecting the republic from the dark gods...or killing them.
| Guest chapter 1 . 2/18/2014
also here are some proof of the republics blatent ability to stomp the i.o.m if they so please.
the empire was turning whole planets surface into recruiting stands and called them (so original)recruiting worlds
the rupublic has throwing trash into space for so long that alot of it grew into planets of garbage and they are called trash planets now and they are common as dirt
palatine was handing out planet sized luxury yauts called world-crafts
the empire built 4 death stars in there time each bigger and better then the last
the trade feds had ended up plastering planets with b.1 droid factory's by the end of the clone wars.
i know theres more feats like this but it realy dose go to show the republics unaccountably HUGE industry advantage
| Guest chapter 1 . 2/18/2014
i realy...REALY hope you dont think that a mere single crusade fleet would be able to take own a major sw power and win because the truth is that this has been done about 10000000 times on debate forums acros the web and almost every time the answer is that the major sw faction stomps the imperium into the dust after they get there shit together and then kill the i.o.m with greater industry,infinitely faster ships and SLIGHTLY better ground units on average
this answer is sent x10 if the i.o.m is still stuck fighting there regular foes as well...which they are.
