Among those in attendance were Terry Farrell. An actress and model, Farrell is best known for playing the role of Jadzia Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. She also had a lead role in the horror movie Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth and starred as diner owner Reggie Kostas on the TV show Becker.

Also at the show was Christopher Judge. Best known for playing Teal'c in Stargate SG-1, Judge also appeared in TV shows 21 Jump Street, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Sirens, as well as Andromeda, Stargate Atlantis and The Mentalist. Judge also enjoyed roles in major motion pictures including The Dark Knight Rises and Snow Dogs. Next up for Judge is a live-action short film, Infinity Blade Chronicles, about the blockbuster video game.

Judge told us why he thinks Comic Cons are becoming so popular. "I think it's a change in the connotation of the word GEEK. It's no longer a negative to -- you know -- come out as a geek. It's become kind of a status quo now." Said Judge. "People who aren't geeks now say they're geeks. The [geeks] have inherited the earth."

Dallas Comic Con Fan Days revs back up Sunday morning at ten and wraps up at five.
