Rule 13 (Overtaking) ALWAYS supersedes Rule 18 (Responsibility between Vessels).
So, in this case it is the Responsibility of the Overtaking vessel (NUC Vessel) in this case to keep clear of you. Own vessel has to give ”wake up signal” of five short blasts on the ship’s whistle. If no action is taken by other vessel, give wide alteration to Port and take a round turn after passing by the stern of the NUC vessel.
