You then get a new message.
Deliver a Nemesis to the Teladi Trading Station in Spaceweed Grove. Buy one from a Paranid Shipyard and get it to the Trading Station. You get the value of it back when its delivered. If your not flying it yourself, dock ahead of it first, so you are on the station when it docks.
