There was some line when they first boarded that the phasers can only be only set to stun. "There's won't be," Khan says.

What I can't figure out was the techno-babble line that prevented the Vengeance from firing on the Enterprise. Khan ends his explanation by saying "Which gives us the advantage."
I saw the movie again earlier this week and it goes something like this:
*Kirk gives Khan a phaser from the backpack*
Kirk: It's locked to stun.
Khan: Theirs won't be.
*Kirk and Scotty dialogue about Khan*
*Scotty's phaser barrel spins from blue (stun) to kill (red)*

Those last two parts might be concurrent.

Biz Dev Guy: Your communications satellite has to be the size, shape, and weight of a hydrogen bomb.
