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.
It's also likely the current solution is debated in the 24c or people are trying to find other solutions.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
