Its just stupid that Q wants to have a child because he thinks that will stop the Q civil war, but he puts all his effort into trying to sleep with Janeway, when there are millions easier ways for him to have a kid and time is a factor. Q may not be good guy but he should care about the fate of his own people, this just makes Q look incompetent, its not a well written episode. Q is only a "pathetic loser" because that episode is badly written.
See that's the thing. He cares about his people but at the end of the day it's all about the PRIZE. The prize of winning the starship captain's bed and heart and the prize of saving his people. The prize is his ultimate goal.
This is why he is a pathetic loser.
