I asked a question many months ago, Why didn't Geordi and Ro fall through the floor in "The Next Phase" episode of TNG?, and it was closed as a duplicate of How come Patrick Swayze didn't fall through floorboards in Ghost, which I found to be acceptable at the time.
However, I have since stumbled upon a completely unrelated post by @TangoOversway here on meta ( https://scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/a/1546/2912 ), which hints at an answer to my earlier question, and demonstrates it is not a simple "intentional goof" (as the answer on the duplicate question suggests):
For example, a frequently asked question about the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode The Next Phase is, "If Geordi and Ro could walk through walls, why didn't they sink through the floor?" It's a legitimate question and it's not addressed on screen, but Ron Moore has gone on record as saying they had an explanation involving surface tension, but it got cut.
Is this sufficient evidence to re-open the question? And hopefully @TangoOversway, or someone else familiar with Ron Moore's "on-record" statements, can fill in an appropriate answer?
