According to Muppet Wiki, "Pigs in Space is a recurring sketch from The Muppet Show, featuring the exploits of Captain Link Hogthrob, First Mate Piggy and Dr. Julius Strangepork leading a crew of pigs aboard the Swinetrek. This sketch is a parody of Star Trek, Lost in Space and other space operas of the 1960's and 1970's.
 
Link Hogthrob is the blonde, cleft-chinned pig with a high opinion of himself who played the not-so-fearless captain of the Swinetrek, where his unbridled machismo was often a source of conflict with First Mate Piggy.
 
Dr. Julius Strangepork is an elderly pig who serves as resident scientist aboard the Swinetrek. He speaks in a German accent and performed routine repair work as well as offering diagnostics on planets or approaching spacecrafts."

Link Hogthrob's Performer:
Jim Henson (1977-1990)
Steve Whitmire (2000-present)
 
Dr. Julius Strangepork's Performer:
Jerry Nelson
