They dealt with it.. Star Trek for example, has abolished capitalism in the federation and only use money for trade with others or independent colonies.

The problem with science fiction utopias abandoning capitalism, or in your specific case star trek, is that those fictional futures have access to unrealistic technologies that greatly reduced or even eliminated major societal problems like finite resources, food, etc. If you can feed your family with a magic device that generates meals with the press of a button, and runs off of some nearly unlimited energy source, then a job isn't as useful. When someone invents a replicator then we can talk.

Note: I am aware of 3D printers, they aren't anywhere near that level yet.
