We know that in order to assemble an interstellar vessel, it will need to be built in orbit, at an orbital shipyard. But how does the orbital shipyard get built? It could be built in multiple launches using more conventional rockets. But the individual parts of the shipyard would probably be larger than the 5-meter diameter parts. So, the obvious solution is larger conventional rocket parts.
