Nice to see you again Vasili, Remember the Vostroyans? :P
As a final note to the deathstar vs Imperial Navy, Space Marine Battle Barges are not the only incredible ships the Imperium can field. A single Imperial Battleship, such as a Victory, Emperor, Retribution, or older models like Apocalypse or Oberon Classes all have greater power when it comes to las lance, torpedo quantity, and Broadside power. The Emperor Class also doubles as a "Space Aircraft Carrier," which can hold entire divisions of attack craft. The Retribution Class carries with it a Nova Cannon, which can destroy squardrons of escort craft, and obliterate Capital ships in a single firing. Even Crusiers of various classes such as Avenger, Mars, Overload, Armageddon, and others carry enough power to take down a Deathstar with a few squadrons, and no heavy casualties. Even obsolete Ironclads (with no void sheilds) Can have massive Nova Cannons mounted to them, or heavier weaponry, and used as massive decoys, and ultimetly Fireships of the 17th and 18th Century, essentially using it's cannon until it no longer can, and then ramming a target, utterly destroying it and anything around it.
Also, I can almost guarentee that the Imperium can outproduce anything in the SW universe.

Oh hai. Going back to what someone said, I think a Jedi could take on a marine, granted he has his light saber, those things can cut limbs off like piss, power amour or not.
so can a power sword, or a chain fist, or a pair of lightning claws.
It would be interesting to see a jedi or a sith go up against a librarian, every time they tried to use their powers the librarian would just need to use his psychic hood to negate them and then attack them with his force weapon.
Power swords are lightsabers. Before you say "omfg no wai cause it has metal" they all differ. Some very fancy powerswords are pure energy like a lightsaber, the cheaper ones are metal with energy pulses running through them.
I've been thinking of whether or not a Jedi could stop bolter fire, and i don't think they could, unless they were extremely powerful.
they couldn't block the bolts with the saber, they'd just explode and shred the jedi they could Push the bolts away with the force, but a bolter, depending on the Mark, can put out 3-4 round bursts at intervals of about half a second each, so thats 2 seconds, to stop all bolts, a jedi would have to hold a push for 2 seconds, then start it again in the second it takes for the next burst, constantly, the jedi would eventually get worn down. and that's if its only 1 Bolter, marines work in teams normally.
I can't think whether Marines outnumber jedi, cos we're taking things from right across the SW universe, we've had Clones and Death stars, so at the very least ranging from TPM to ROTJ. early on, before the clones, there was quite a few jedi, upwards of a thousand jedi, but even that wouldn't outnumber the Marines. a team of 10 marines could take down a jedi, and that would be the split. obviously after that, there are very few jedi.
you could say when there was the biggest amount of jedi, which would either be a long long long time ago, likely before the Kotor ages, at the time of the true sith, i'd say back then there would be more jedi than Space marines. or you could go forward, when the new Jedi Academy came about, for a breif period before Darth Krayt arrived, the Jedi would of both outnumbered the Marines, and they weere better trained in combat than jedi had ever been.
heres a slightly different topic but it is related to the main topic,
sith lord vs chaos lord? who would own who?
although i hate SM, i think they would still win, as Lightsabers might have some trouble cutting throu their armor, and their force powers match those of mabye a librarian. Of course, they prolly couldnt deflect bolter fire, predator lasercannons, ect. also, Jedi dont have tanks, just dinky fighters. SM have a huge array of weaponry and tactics

sith lord vs chaos lord? who would own who?
chaos lord, even if the jedi killed him the jedi would be killed by the chaos lrds acidic blood( its worse than a sm blood) also in the fluff a chaos lord has thousands of more years experience than even some of the oldest space marines due to the fact that theyve been around since before the horous heresy.
on a differnt note, chaos would own sw hands down, ^^ all they hae to do is posses the jedi or summon a greater deamon, or open a warp gate and all hell would break loose:naughty:
Please Forgive my spelling mistakes :deal:
