Presumably, you will care if the Pact does fall because it will have an in-universe effect on the characters that (I assume) you care about.
Who exactly would it have an impact on? These characters existed just fine before the Pact and I doubt the fall will change them in any meaningful way. Especially considering the books have been on a resurrection roll recently.

Worst that happens is Picard and Sisko retire. And we get Worf as captain, which would kill my interest in the TNG books. Or possibly something happens to Titan to cause the deck chairs to be rearranged.

But it won't be anything major like the deaths of the main TV characters.
But it would be a huge galaxy changing shift in the political landscape. That would have to have a pretty big effect on the characters.
Exactly. Moreover, there's likely to be some upheaval associated with the event. People will get hurt, people will die, things will get blown up... if the story is told by a good writer, then things like that will have effects on the characters.
