I can see where that would be confusing.
For the most part yes 5 and and 5.5 can be viewed as alternatives. All T5 and 5.5 ships within a category (so far) have the same number of weapons, and same number of console slots. And all T5/5.5 ships follow the pattern of 1 Commander, 1 Lt Commander, 2 Lieutenants, and 1 Ensign. The .5's all come with special consoles, which are removable if you do not want that power. Without a console the ship has the same number of console slots as the T5 ships.
There will be some differences in stats at times depending on some of the other factors on the ships. For example the T5 Recon science vessel has the same health as the T5.5 Long Range Science Refit. They other T5/5.5 science ships have more health, but they pay for it with slower turn rates.
I nice ship chart to look at is the one in this thread. It shows all the Fed ships in the game.
I hope I was of help and didn't confuse you more.
