Cannot get credit for a task I've completed.

In the contacts section I have a task that gives 15000 credits that I can’t seem to complete.  It says…


Reach reputation rank 2 with the Empire.  Access to new ranks is opened by buying ships of the corresponding rank.


I have already purchased a Dvergar which is a rank 2 empire ship.  Am I misunderstanding the objective of this task?



Known bug, wait for the fix.
