There are also a bunch of video games that are made. Blood Bowl 3 got released recently (or will be, it was delayed at some point).

My laptop's got a qualcomm atheros qca9377 wifi adapter. Sometimes when I start up the laptop it doesn't work, disabling and reenabling the device only works on occasion, otherwise I have to restart the whole laptop.

Anyone know how to fix this? Drivers are apparently up to date, and google's shitty search isn't showing relevant information.

The Brave Little Toaster setting.

It came out in 1987. Starwars came out in 1977 and 40k came out in 1997.

Anyway, the most literal answer is "Star Wars/WH40k crossovers", of which I found 93 from a quick check of fanfiction.net. There's probably more elsewhere, for that matter.

What setting is between 40k and star wars?
What they have in common:

-Mind science powers that connect to a metaphysical reality
-Surprising ubiquitousness of melee combat despite devastating weapons and strategic orbital bombardment options available
-Scifi FTL setting
-Both descendents of Dune, complete with lasguns, personal shields and god-emperors of the galaxy
-Both make references to ancient elder Empires upon whose ruins humanity steps

What they differ in:
-40k has bigger, fatter men, hitting other bigger fatter men
-Star wars is oppressed by a cruel and tyrannical government which exterminates entire worlds for disobedience
40k is oppressed by a cruel and tyrannical government which exterminates entire worlds for disobedience. They are mankind's only hope
-Star wars aliens and droids are cool. 40k aliens and droids are haram
-Star wars jedi mind science taps into a metaphysical zoroastrian dichotomy. 40k psyker mind science taps into the cosmic atman noosphere
-Old tech in star wars is nostlagic. Old tech in 40k is sacred and leagues better than whatever tripe you're allowed to invent without causing tech-heresy purges

Which suggests that the mean average of the two is probably Halo or Mass Effect

-Halo marines are fatter armoured than star wars, but slimmer armoured than the phattest and thiccest 40k space marine
-Surprising abundance of melee combat despite availability of devastating weapons & strategic orbital bombardment options being available
-Scifi FTL settings
-Both Halo and Mass Effect 3rd generational descendents of Dune
-Both make references to elder empires upon whose ruins humanity steps
-Mass Effect has mind science, Halo not really
-Aliens are sometimes cool, sometimes haram
-Old tech is sometimes better, but there's also no tech stagnation, people are constantly trying to make new stuff (albeit in Halo there is some economic stagnation)

40k is 38 000 years into the future

Star wars is a long time ago

You are correct

Yes. Both purport to be different times in our world.

Star Wars is also in a galaxy far, far away.

Which leads to the question, how the fuck did humans get there?

I think the better question might be how did they get here?

Lost our keys and forgot where we parked the spaceship.
