Noncoplanar is a term in geometry referring two or more figures, lines, or points that do not all lie in the same plane.

Noncoplanar points are points that do not lie on the same plane. If you have two rectangles joined together at points CD, then the rectangle at points ABCD have coplanar points but the points EF are not coplanar, that is, they do not lie on the plane defined by ABCD. On the other hand, the points CDEF are coplanar points but points AB are noncoplanar points. Dr Grips

Skew lines are noncoplanar; therefore they're not parallel & don't intersect.

Any three given points can be joined by a common plane, and any two given points can be joined by a common line and an infinite number of common planes.

They are skew line. Skew line are two lines that do not intersect but are not parallel.Another definition is skew lines are straight lines that are not in the same plane and do not intersect.Either way, skew lines are the answer to your question since they are noncoplanar and do not intersect.
