Possibly the best course of action would be to dismantle the ship and copy the technology. It has advanced nuclear reactors, jet engines, computer technology, radar, communications, and other aircraft technologies. Those would have been a great leap forward in technology that would not only end the war faster, but also possibly preempt the cold war (with some warning) by putting the United States another decade ahead of the USSR in 1945. If it changed the Manhattan Project or even avoided the need for it, Klaus Fuchs may never have been informed of the design of a nuclear weapon. That would have prevented him from transmitting that information to the USSR further harming their weapons program. It is possible that the Nimitz in 1942 would have prevented the cold war that it was designed to fight!
