On Fermat's Last Theorm, as of 1988/89 when the episode was made we hadn't yet solved it, at that point being a 300+ year old problem. It probably didn't seem likely it'd be solved in ANOTHER 300 years either.
Still, I can't help but get some sense of satisfaction from knowing that our real world society was able to solve it mere years after the episode aired, and yet the perfect utopian race of humans 300 years into the future are still stumped.
