Fed missions do give you better stuff, but they give it to you in a completely random, haphazard manner. New weapons might give you a bigger % boost to your overall effectiveness than a new deflector array, say, if you're a Tactical officer in an Escort. When levelling a klink, you can choose to get better weapons first, then a better shield, then better consoles, etc, in the order you want, meaning your effectiveness increases quite quickly upon hitting a new rank. However, on the Fed side, you have to take what you're given, which might mean taking a blue deflector array that you won't really benefit from much, and having to wait 2 or 3 levels for the fancy new weapons you will really make use of.
