I inquired on this point and found out that the 3 or 6 point Commanders which are issued with the Early Access ships ARE trained to the ship in question. The issue is more with a player taking an existing high-skill point Commander and using them on the Early Access ship while it's in "special" status (not requiring Commanders to be trained to the ship). When the "special" status ends, the Commander is still trained to whatever ship they were previously trained to in the same manner as if they were used on a Premium or other Special ship.
