Hi, I want to create my own sector to make a BFG story in, but I need to change the imperial leadership structure. It's going to be a fringe sector, with tyranids, eldar and necrons being the main enemies. Thers going to be large Inquisition and Mechanicus forces, along with the Imperial Navy. Since a comparatively small number of planets have been settled, would it be feasable that the navy controlls the settlements? Like, instead of a planetary governor a commander or captain would fill that role while remaining on their ship. And instead of a sector commander could a lord inquisitor be in charge of such a big area? Also ships would be scarce, as there is not much Imperial activity in that area and large parts of it are restricted by the inquisition.
Normally this would be pretty unusual seeing as the Imperium doesn't like any of the organisations to have too much power (Hence why the Imperial NAvy and Imperial Guard are seperate) on the other hand if the sub sector had been cut off from the rest of the Imperium or at least contact was limited then there is no reason why internal methods of government might differ from the rest of the Imperium.
The key with these kinds of ideas is to come up with a good reason as to why the norm has been changed.
Incidentally just remember the Imperium is a truly vast place, anything can happen.

Yeh. haven't really thought it out that much, just wanted to know if it's feasible.
Good ideas yes. But more detail, more!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

BFG = Battle Fleet Gothic
Hard to explain it, but it's basically 40k only in space and you control the Imperial Fleet as units.
If you win games against Nids with flamers (aside from the Inferno Cannon on a Hellhound), you're playing against opponents with stupidity of impressive magnitude.
Well, there are fleet lists for Space Marine strike forces, as well as special Inquisition cruisers and, of course, the various alien races - Eldar, Tau, Orks and so on. It's not just the Imperial Navy, although that is the most detailed and expansive fleet list.
Battlefleet Gothic as a game system is troublesome, complicated, unrealistic and permanently reminiscent of the Battle of Trafalgar (it takes a lot from 16-17th c. naval tactics, with broadsides and ramming actions) but it's a wonderful source of fluff on Warhammer spaceships. I mean, I never knew that all Eldar ships are propelled by enormous light-sensitive sails that catch gusts of solar radiation from nearby stars. And knowing this little fact raises interesting points regarding Eldar, in that they can't travel in between systems without using a Craftworld or a Webway portal, because their ships rely on a nearby star for their propulsion. So while their ships are more agile than they should be, they also need proper "winds" to gain full speed, and their practical agility is limited by their reliance on a nearby Webway portal for an exit strategy.
Also, just as an aside, Necron ships in BFG are totally pwntz0ren.

It would be best to limit them to rare sightings and encounters
The Ordo Xenos has discovered alien artifacts in the sector (maybe Necron tech because it would explain their presence), so both the Ordo and the Mechanicus are conducting a joint research expedition. To keep the info confidential, the =I= has quarantined the area and has requisitioned Imperial Navy resources to guard the sector. The settlements in the area are colonies that help provide supplies for the operation. Each colony is dominated by a Navy garrison, which is why naval officers are in command of the settlements.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.
