Sometimes Star Trek is beyond belief
On the Star Trek spin-off show, Deep Space Nine, there is a Japanese character, Keiko O'Brien. Surprisingly, Keiko and her family do not remove their shoes in their apartment on the space station.
It may be the far future and it may be that the floors are cleaned by invisible nanobots, but I am quite confident that the Japanese are not going to start wearing their shoes at home.
