Rule says add up the influence from all allied planets and mark the position on the Galactic Council board...player with the highest influence gains the higher victory point allowance...next highest player gains the lower victory point amount listed.

The Galactic Council board has 12-positions where 1, 5, and 10 are listed on the board; presumably these are just there as "helpers" so you have some idea where you fall on the tract without counting from 1-12 each time. This also implies if I have 7 influence and that is the highest amount then I gain 7 VP. If you have 6 influence then you gain 6VP, etc.....

Why oh why wasnt this rule written as ,"...score the amount of victory points equal to the number of influence points." Then all that is necessary is to say in the case of ties, "...both players score the same number of VPs..."

Am I missing something?

You get the VPs listed on the Score card, not by the number of VPs you have.

Yes! As stated above, the number of VPs you receive for having the most influence points isn't the actual number of influence points, it's the number of VPs that's printed on the scoring event cards.
