It's bigger, but since Trek has often pointed out that lasers are vastly more primitive than phasers, and SW ships have no shielding nor transporters, I doubt they'd stand much of a chance.
Star Wars ships have shields. (They're mentioned in A New Hope during the attack on the Death Star. "All shields, double front!")
And in other places: "Nothing can get through our shields!" You can even see the shield around Anakin's Naboo fighter at one point in TPM, while during the Battle of Coruscant in ROTS a bluish ripple effect can be seen when Republic fire hits the shields of the Trade Federation donut ships.
