If memory serves, the Sun Voyager came in two configurations:

Monochrome (bw2?)
Color (cg6) Sun part # 501-2393

I seem to recall that the cg6 in the SS240 was a bit odd, but NetBSD
should work on it. There was a Solaris package of "Voyager drivers" in
Solaris 8 and older, called SUNWvygdr.m but I couldn't tell you if there
was a framebuffer driver in there or not. Solaris 8 was the last
supported OS for that hardware.
