"Brighter and uplifting?" It's a story about humanity being laughtered by killer robots. How the hell do you make something like that bright and uplifting?
You're right. How about inspiring and hopeful?
The backstory of Dune is all about scientient robots as well but that was dark and gritty. I would like to see it be more like Verhoven's 'Starship Troopers.'
