I have NEVER had a problem with scientists and science fiction. In the early days of science fiction the majority of short stories were written by scientists (which is why the majority of SF in the 50's are a "what if" scenario).
Maybe they didn't think they could validate characters that weren't part of their field of expertise? Like I don't know anything about astrophysics so I can't tell who's good at it or not.
