Parallel 9 was a British Childrens Television show that aired weekly on a Saturday morning from 1992 to 1994. 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ... 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by United Nations. ...

The premise of the show focused on Mercator, an old alien prince with very long eyebrows who had been banished to Parallel 9 as a result of his thirst for knowledge - a criminal offence on his home planet. Mercator is a Latin word which translates to merchant. Most commonly, it refers to Gerardus Mercator, a 16th century Flemish cartographer. ...

As part of his punishment, he was allowed to awake for only 2 hours a week; from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturdays, and had the ability to ‘beam up’ guests from Earth to Parallel 9. A transporter platform aboard the USS Enterprise-D. The illuminated circles at the top are on the bottom of the transporter platform used in the original Star Trek. ... Adjectives: Terrestrial, Terran, Telluric, Tellurian, Earthly Atmosphere Surface pressure: 101. ...

Amongst the other characters that made regular appearances on the show were Calendular - an earth girl who had become a permanent resident on Parallel 9, and three other criminals who had been banished from their home planet; Steyl, Skyn and Thynkso. The latter three spent the entirety of the show plotting ways to escape Parallel 9.

2 further series' followed the first, but the latter suffered from diminishing popularity that was attributed in part to the re-casting of many roles. This eventually led to the show's cancellation in 1994.
