Re: Is TOS the best sci-fi TV American series until 1985?

I stand corrected. JJ Trek had a science advisor. You'd never know it, though.
The new film was no worse than the original series, which frequently ignored the science advice of Harvey P. Lynn (in the first season) and de Forest Research (all seasons).

You may recall that Isaac Asimov became involved with the series with an article in TV Guide -- which criticized the series for scientific inaccuracy!
Scientific accuracy has never been one of Trek's strengths in the thirty-five years I've been watching. Regardless of series or movie.
