Saw this image on BattlestarWiki (there's a nice high-res version there that lets you get a close look at the partial faces, not that I recognised any although one looks a bit like Nikki Clyne but probably isn't) and thought it had possibilities:-
It's not a huge spoiler.. probably. It really depends on whether these really are the final five, or if they're just representations in Three's mind, like placeholders. It also depends on whether these are Cylons who exist only in the ether of "heaven", or if they exist somewhere in real space and time, and "heaven" is just a method of contacting them.
It's all a rich tapestry, and we've only just seen the first threads.

So, in continuing to pull references from TOS Galactica to NuBSG... do the final five represent the advanced aliens in the ship of light? The ones that were chasing Count Iblis and later helped in the Eastern Alliance arc?

*sigh* It wasn't really meant to provoke a serious discussion about the identities of the Final Five, the image just amused me, is all. But here for anyone who cares is a full set of the close-ups:-
The one thing I'll say is, that looks like Exec Producer David Eick on the right.
Well she didn't expect the Cylon inquisition!...
Seriously though, I like the idea that the final 5 might not have physical bodies, as if they've transcended into beings of pure consciousness. A bit Ghost in the Shell I know, but I find the concept more appealing than just having a bunch people who we thought were human turn out to be skinjobs.
