Yes, but do you want a common point or the common line? The simplest
technology is probably Pluecker coordinates, described briefly in the
cga FAQ,

and more extensively in the links, especially this one.

Quoting from the latter:

L={EF:fE-eF}, for [E:e] and [F:f] distinct planes containing L.


(VU:UU) is the point of L closest to the origin.
Pnt(t)=(VU+tU:UU) parameterizes points on L.
