Layman's terms:

Exploration Refit = Tier 4, Captain Rank.
Exploration Retrofit = Tier 5, Admiral Rank.

(I'm deliberately avoiding the .5 debate for simplicity's sake - Let's not confuse the issue, as the Refit is a Captain's vessel.)

The BOFF, Weapons, Console arrangements of the Retrofit are all better than the Refit. This said - You can buy both, if you so choose, and transfer the antimatter special ability from the Refit to the Retrofit.
