If I understand skills with specialities correctly, as long as a skill has specialities and you gain a rank 1+, this rank applies to only one speciality. What about rank 0 in such a skill? The Starter Set pregens often have skills with specialities at rank 0 without mentioning a speciality.
Aren Veight for example has Drive ( ) 0 and gun combat ( ) 0. Does that mean that he has 0 in every speciality of that skill?
On the other hand he has Pilot ( spacecraft ) 3. Does it mean he hat pilot 0 in his other Pilot specialities or does he count as untrained in specialities other than spacecraft?

Yes, with most that have multiple options you get them at rank 0, if you have a skill at rank 1+ you put that in a particular area, and are considered to have the other areas at rank 0. Trade is an exception where you don't automatically get the rest at rank 0.
