    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    It matters not what current military branch(s) this hypothetical space military is based upon, there must be provisions made for a force of Space Marines.

    It is required - one could almost say it's a law of nature.

    Death Star perhaps - although it was a bit overkill.

    TIE fighters, no.

    TIE fighters are cheap throwaway fighters, designed to be used in large numbers - better to go with the X-wing and family - more survivability for the pilots, not to mention being more flexible platforms - TIE fighters can't jump, as an example.

    They don't have to be identical to the "Space Marines" of 40K fame.

    Just the name, really. Perhaps some power armor. Plenty of weaponry.

    The Navy - Marine Corps team would be ideally suited for the role. Most of current Navy and Marine Corps methods would transfer easily to space travel and would offer the best foundation to build upon.

    If such a Scenario became commonplace, I think it safe to say that the Navy and Marine Corps would transition entirely to space duties with terrestrial duties becoming sole responsibility of the Air Force and Army.

    Some states will have to be Forge States.

    Why?

    We don't have to have the limitations of the 40k world - wherein they forgot how to build all the crap they need, and must rely on the only remaining automated factories to make stuff.

    If my extremely limited knowledge of that sci-fi world is correct, that was the main reason there were ”forge worlds” – cause nowhere else had forges, due to no one knowing how to build more.
