1625 The NORC is an asteroid in the outer Main Belt, discovered on 1 September 1953 and named after the IBM Naval Ordnance Research Calculator.

This asteroid is home to the 'Danelaw base furthest Out. The Stingray and any sister ships she may have have a resupply and logistics base here, which includes a computer complex informally called "New NORC".

Civilian traffic is occasionally allowed to land at The NORC's Hopper Field at the discretion of base Commander McHale, but usually traffic is restricted to USN vessels.
