Kurasawa 1 Medal

So I've just finished Kurasawa 1 on the sega-cd port of wc1, now according to secrets of the WCU, there are no medals available. For those who don't have the book/know the mission, heres the run-through

Nav 1a - Dorkir, 6 Dralthi
Nav 2 - Dorkir, 3 Krant
Nav 1b - Dorkir, 2 Jalthi

Dorkir are worth 15 pts
Dralthi are worth 10 pts
Krants are worth 10 pts
Jalthi are worth 15 pts

Medals are won for getting (generally) 120-160 pts - but only in missions when available.
So in the first play through I got 6 Dralthi, 2 Dorkirs, 2 Krants and 2 Jalthi (140pts)
Bossman got one of the Dorkirs (kill stealing swine) and a Krant ran away
In the second run, Bossman stole a Dralthi and a Krant, leaving me with 12 - consisting of:
5 Dralthi, 3 Dorkirs, 2 Krants and 2 Jalthi (145 pts)

The second time I got a silver star, for a mission which I didn't think I could get, is this an error in secrets? or a change in the segacd port, or just a random luck bug!

Is this the mission where one of the Dorkirs is carrying command staff?
It's probably destroying all 3 Dorkirs that got you the medal for getting less points.

I got the medal on the second run when i got 145 pts. My question was if this was a bug in segacd or an error in the secrets of the WCU.

Relatedly, in kurasawa 2 the secrets guide says you can get a silver star, but i managed to get a gold star.

It' probably a problem with the Sega CD version, but it's difficult to be sure.
I just thought that seeing as you got a silver star for scoring LESS points, the medal must have been tied to you personally destroying all 3 Dorkirs

I thought i'd check against the pc version - so i used the Origin -k cheat to help me plough through to the kurasawa missions - but wierdly any mission i had to rescue stuff i failed - even though i escorted the vehicle back to base, further i even managed to get medals (see port hedland) where the only way to was to save the drayman, and yet got balled out for losing it!

So my ongoing sega-cd playthrough just had me win a silver star for the kurasawa 3 mission (save the exeter) for getting 5 dralthi and 4 krants (and saving the exeter) - seriously thats 2 medals that secrets claim i cannot get and the one it claims i can get, i got a different one! LOAF is this a sega-cd difference or not?
